Great Beginner Bike
The Frog Road 70 is an excellent starter bike for my 11 year old. He's been riding it almost everyday since the purchase. Not as light as I had expected but it's definitely stable on a straight-away run... My son is not in favor of the out-of-the-box pedals so we're waiting for a new set of clipless ones since we're riding more on roads than off-roading. That's another nice thing about this purchase - it came along with swappable off-roading/cross-terrain set of tires, tubes and other extras like reflectors for late/night time riding. Ready, Set, Pedal was so informative about the scheduling of the delivery and very helpful on all questions about the bike itself. I highly recommend this bike for young cycling enthusiasts.
good bike, well packaged, no problems
My son loves his bike and he’s been riding even when the temperatures have been in the low 30s. The breaks were way too tight and it needed a tune up so I had to pay for that and there are several spots where the yellow paint is chipped and while I called immediately and left a message I got no response about sending out touch up paint. It was really difficult to even find a bike the size of the frog 70. Giant was sold out. Stores were sold out. We are happy with the bike so far (one week in) but I wish they’d send me some touch up paint and have had it looked over better before shipping it out. The breaks were hugging the rims tightly. The check list that they go through and send with the bike apparently wasn’t done very carefully. After spending close to $1000 on a kid’s bike it would have been nice not to have to fork out more money to get it ready to ride.
It looks like a perfect bike for 11 yo.
My daughter tried it just once before the snowfall and she was thrilled. Very good packaging, I was able to assemble the bike in no time. We are very happy with the purchase.
Love at first sight
My son told me: i really like this bike a lot. 'How a lot?' 'Very much a lot'.
