Frog 73 is for the youngest mountain bike enthusiasts in the UK
In addition to city bikes or hybrid models, the Frog brand also offers a line of mountain bikes. The Frog 73 is one of them.
If you want to gift a bike for Xmas to an adventurous 13-14-year-old, this model is perfect for them. It features quick-release 26″ wheels and a 16″ frame, along with an adjustable seatpost. With Kenda 26 x 1.5″ hybrid tires, this bike offers smoother rolling compared to the 26 x 2″ studded mountain bike tires commonly found on other bikes. The thinner tires of the Frog bike make it easier to accelerate, resulting in a more enjoyable riding experience most of the time.
Frog bike accessories
Cool bike accessories for kids are just as important as the bikes themselves. Treat your rider to useful additions to make riding even more fun.
A cool water bottle is one of the most crucial kids’ accessories. Both kids and adults need to stay hydrated. This water bottle features a signature logo and a non-slip finger grip, ensuring that your child stays hydrated.
Frog reversible bottle holder
This bottle holder is known for its ingenious design. Its side entry feature enables it to fit on almost any type of bicycle, be it a large bike or a child’s bike. Moreover, it is reversible, allowing for installation regardless of your dominance, whether you are right-handed or left-handed.
This collaborative product from Frog and Muc-off is an excellent way to introduce your child to the importance of responsibility and the basics of bike maintenance. By using the Nano Tech cleaner and microcell sponge included in this kit, your child will quickly learn how to keep their bike clean. Additionally, the bio-dry lube will help prevent rust on the chain. Your young rider will also enjoy the stylish bag and stickers included in this kit.
Extra lighting is always beneficial for riders, no matter their age. If you are searching to buy online, there is a powerful rechargeable LED light with a medical-grade silicone mounting system and 9 light modes that you can pre-order (subject to supplier availability). However, if you need immediate options, there are other bike lights and helmets available for purchase online.
Perhaps the final (but certainly not least) gift you can give to your young cycling and Frog enthusiast is to enhance their wardrobe with some trendy additions. This fashionable grey sweatshirt, composed of 80% cotton, could be the perfect choice. With its double-layer fabric hood, it will keep their head warm even during blustery days. Moreover, the kangaroo pocket features a hidden headphone hole, allowing your child to enjoy their favourite tunes while hiking through the park.
Gift a bike for Christmas to your child, and give happiness and happy memories.
