Our Guide to the Frog Road 58 Kids Bike
The Frog Road 58 Kids Bike is a great choice for young riders who are ready to take their road cycling to the next level. It's a lightweight and durable bike that is perfect for riding on paved roads and bike paths.
In this blog post, we will take a comprehensive look at the Frog Road 58 Kids Bike, including its features, benefits, and specifications.
Like all Frog bikes, The Frog Road 58 has a number of key features that make it a great choice for young riders:
The lightweight aluminium frame makes the bike easy to manoeuvre and control, even for smaller riders. This is important for young riders who are still developing their balance and coordination.
For young riders looking to get into road cycling and racing, an agile lightweight road bike will be a great advantage.
The drop handlebars give the bike a more aerodynamic profile and allow for a more comfortable riding position. This is especially beneficial for longer rides.
Drop handlebars can be a bit intimidating for beginners, but they are actually quite easy to use. The Frog Road 58 has narrow and short-drop handlebars, which makes them easier for kids to reach and control. The handlebars also have a comfortable grip area, which makes them enjoyable to hold.
Patented Frog Cranks
The patented Frog cranks are shorter and have a narrower Q-factor than traditional cranks. This makes it easier for young riders to pedal efficiently and avoid knee pain.
Dual Braking Control
The dual braking control system gives riders two ways to slow down or stop the bike: using the traditional brake levers on the handlebars or using the auxiliary brake levers on the top of the handlebars. This gives young riders more control over their bike and helps them to brake safely in all conditions.
The 9-speed Shimano drivetrain provides a wide range of gears for different terrain, so your child can easily climb hills and cruise on flat roads. This is important for young riders who are still developing their strength and endurance.
We have a helpful blog on whether or not your child is ready for a bike with gears if you are not sure.
The Kenda tyres offer excellent traction on a variety of surfaces, including pavement, gravel, and dirt. This makes the bike suitable for riding on a variety of roads and trails.
