The Details

The Frog 44 is a perfect, great value bike ideal for 4-5-year-olds with an average inside leg of 44cm. This bike has a lightweight but sturdy frame making the bike easy to manoeuvre for your child and easy for you to carry. The Frog 44 only weighs only 6.39kg. Along with weight saving, this bike has a lower positioned bottom bracket to achieve a more ergonomic position on the bike. 

In addition, it includes Tektro brakes with small, easy to reach brake levers, which provides better control and improved confidence for young riders.

One of the biggest temptations is to buy a bike your child will "grow into". However, this is likely to have the opposite effect and put your child off bikes and cycling altogether! This new frame has a longer steerer tube which includes a 10mm spacer on top of the stem. This allows room to move the handlebars into a higher position as they grow.

Another common mistake is to purchase a budget bike but these models are often as heavy as the child and lead to tears and frustration at not being able to cycle. Our lightweight bikes are a great confidence booster and can also be used as a balance bike for a taller child by removing the pedals.

  • Lightweight but sturdy frame making the bike easy to manoeuvre for your child and easy for you to carry
  • Tektro brakes with small, easy to reach brake levers. Better control means improved confidence for young riders
  • Patented Frog cranks for easier pedalling to reduce the distance between the pedals increasing efficiency and comfort
  • Free 5 year warranty on frame and forks
  • Reflectors, mudguard and bell included
  • Wheel Size - 16 inch

Our Verdict

The Frog 44 features smaller tube diameters and thinner tubing walls to create a impressively lightweight kids bike at just 6.39kg.

Sizing Information

Kids Bike Size Guide

Encourage your kids to explore their neighbourhood by bike – it builds confidence and independence, and sets them up for a lifetime of healthy, active living. Getting the right-sized bike is crucial – children grow fast, but don’t be tempted to pick a bike that your child will “grow into” – if the bike is too big, then it’s going to be uncomfortable and difficult to control.

How do I choose the right size bike for my child?

For the best fit, we recommend measuring your child’s inside leg length. You can also use the age ranges below as an approximate guide.

Then, use the size chart below to match your child’s measurements to the manufacturers’ recommended frame size. Rest assured that every bike size recommended below will allow your child to comfortably and safely place their feet on the ground.

Kids bike sizing chart (Unisex)

Approx Age Min Inside leg Wheel Size
1-2 years 24cm / 9" 10” 
2-3 years 31cm / 12" 12”
3-4 years 38-43cm / 15-17" 14"
4-5 years 48cm / 19" 16"
5-7 years 52-58cm / 20-23" 20"
8-12 years 62-67cm / 24-26" 24”
10-14 years 69-78cm / 27-31" 26"

 

How do I measure my child’s inside leg length?

 

Ask your child to stand upright with their back against a wall, in their socks. Place a book/ruler between their legs, level with their crotch. Then measure from the floor to the top of the book/ruler, in centimetres or feet and inches.

Q & A

My child is in between sizes – which one should I choose?

Always choose the right size of bike for your child today – don’t be tempted to pick a bike that’s a bit too big, in the hope that your child will grow into it. If the bike is too big, then your child will find it uncomfortable and difficult to control. This can really knock a child’s confidence when they’re just establishing their bike-riding skills. Good quality kids’ bikes, like Frog Bikes, are fitted with a long seatpost, so there’s plenty of scope to move the saddle up as your child grows.

How are kids’ bike sizes calculated?

Most kids’ bike sizes are based on wheel size; a few brands (eg. Frog Bikes) size by minimum inside leg length (so a Frog 52 is suitable for a child with an inside leg length of at least 52cm, and should continue to fit until the child’s leg length increases to 55cm. At this point, they can move up to the Frog 55).

What if I buy the wrong size?

Rutland Cycling is the world’s largest Frog Bikes dealer, and we stock many other kids’ bikes, too. If you’re buying a kids’ bike online, then the information above will help you order the right size child’s bike. For ultimate peace of mind, we offer a 90-day returns policy (for unused products), and a 30-day test ride*, so if the bike isn’t right for your child after having ridden it, you can exchange it for another model. If you live nearby, you can visit any of our stores, where our helpful staff are fully trained in the art of children measuring.
