Product Description

The First Pedal Frog 40 is a great value bike for 3 to 4 year olds with an average inside leg of 40cm.

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! The data obtained during our child-specific frame design research has been used to produce a helpful sizing app. Ask in your local store about our FrogFit app to get the best-sized bike for your child.

Another common mistake is to purchase a budget bike but these models are often as heavy as the child and leads to 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.

Wheel Size: 14" inch

Key Features:

  • 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 reduces the distance between the pedals increasing efficiency and comfort 
  • Free 5 year warranty on frame and forks 
  • Reflectors, mudguard and bell included

Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

14" Kids Bike Guide

 

Kids Bike Guide

Learning to ride a bike has never been easier and there are a wide range of kids bikes to suit every child of every age. Choosing the right bike for your child can make all the difference to their cycling experience. In this guide we’ll look at all the features you need to consider when choosing the perfect kids’ bike.


Size and Weight

Is weight important?

Weight is probably even more important for a kid’s bike than an adult’s bike. This is because an adult’s bike can weight around 20% of their body weight while a kid’s bike can weigh up to 50% of their weight. A heavy bike is hard to ride while a lighter bike makes cycling easier and more enjoyable.

Some kids bike brands like Frog and Squish put a lot of focus on weight but the more you spend on a kid's bike, the lighter it will be.

Which size kids’ bike is best?

Kids bikes are sized by their wheel size. You will of course want the colour and style of your child’s new bike to be right, but the most important thing is to get one that’s the right size.

While it's tempting to buy a kid's bike that your child can grow into, so you can wait a little longer before buying the next size up, but a large, ill-fitting bike will be hard to ride, and can even put them off cycling.

Kids and junior bikes have wheels that are between 12” and 24” in diameter. Frame size is matched to wheel size and it’s this wheel size that gives the bike it’s overall size.

What to Look For in a 14" Wheel Kids Bike

Frame

Kids’ bike frames are usually made from steel or aluminium alloy. The best kids’ bikes have aluminium frames as these are lighter weight. A low standover height means that their feet can easily touch the ground and helps make mounting and dismounting the bike easier.

Wheels & Stabilizers

Kids bikes with small 14” wheels usually have chunky tyres that offer traction and stability as well as comfort on rougher ground.

The stabilizers on these bikes are easily removable. If your child is moving up from a balance bike, then they won’t need the stabilizers as they will have developed enough riding skill to try pedalling straight away without them.

Brakes

Little hands often find it difficult to pull brake levers, so many of the best small kids’ bikes have a normal brake on the front combined with a coaster brake on the rear wheel. These brakes work by pressing back on the pedal, so are intuitive for little kids to use.

The brake levers for regular style brakes are adjustable so you can ensure that your child can get their fingers around the brakes.

Other Features

Chain guards that fully enclose the drive train are an important feature on 14” wheel bikes as this will save inquisitive little fingers from getting trapped in the chain.

Adjustable seatposts mean the bike can grow with your child while mudguards allow them to ride on wet surfaces without getting wet themselves.
