Tuesday 3 January, 9:00am

Great news for all the young ones at this year’s show! Frog Bikes is coming to the SECC this March! Frog believes that the lighter the bike, the easier it is for children to learn to ride, and the more enjoyable it is as they progress.

Many kids' bikes on the market weigh nearly as much as the child! They have re-designed kids' bikes, creating a light but strong aluminium frame, handpicking components that offer a high performance without compromising the weight. Only Frog applies this level of rigour to the design of kids' bikes.
