Frog Bikes is a small British company dedicated to making cycling fun for children. The company designs a wide range of kids bikes aimed at proper fit and affordability.
Frog is taking the knowledge the industry learned (or should have) from research into women’s product design and carrying it through to children’s bike design.
According to the Frog Bikes website they “set about re-designing kids’ bikes, creating a light but strong aluminum frame, and hand-picking components that offer a high performance without compromising the weight.Our bikes are now also much easier to pedal due to a unique crank design from the renowned bicycle engineer Dimitris Katsanis (of Team GB Olympic fame). The new design reduces the space between the pedals, allowing children to push more directly down when cycling, so converting more of their energy into motion. Only Frog applies this level of rigour to the design of kids’ bikes.”
Below Dr Tom Korff of Frog Bikes shares the companies philosophy and science behind their children’s bike design process, as well as how they choose and set up suspension forks on their MTBs.
