Frog Bike Assembly & Support
Congratulations on the purchase of your Frog Bike, one of the highest quality kids bikes on the market today. Here are a few resources to help get your child out riding as quickly as possible.
Our bike techs check over every bike before it leaves our warehouse. However, things can occasionally shift during shipping. We recommend doing a complete safety check before your child ever gets on the bike. Once you've assembled the bike, ensure both wheels are secure. Ensure the handlebars are centered and secure. Test the front AND back brakes. If you are uncertain your assembly is correct, we recommend taking your bike to a licensed mechanic to do a safety check for you.
Frog Bike Assembly Resources
Frog Assembly Video
: this is a YouTube video we've created with a step-by-step guide for a Frog 40 & 48 assembly. Although this video shows the assembly for the single speed Frog 40/48 bikes, much of the assembly is the same or very similar for the 8-speed Frog 52/55/62/69 bikes, as they require the same steps: installing the front wheel, attaching the front brakes, mounting the handlebar and installing the pedals. This is likely the most useful resource as you can visually see our professional bike technician walk through each step of assembly.
Frog Owner’s Manual
: this is the formal "Owner's Manual" that covers all Frog bikes. It contains extensive details on all of their bikes, but is probably less helpful for assembly.
Frog Mudguard Installation Instructions
: most of our customers don't use the mudguards unless they are in a particularly rainy climate (it just adds unnecessary weight to the bike). In case you do, these will help you install them.
every Frog bike does have its brakes professionally adjusted by our bike technicians before shipping to you. Occasionally the brakes shift during shipping. If you are very comfortable working on a bike, our bike techs recommend this video to assist you in adjusting the brakes on your Frog bike. Although the video isn't specifically a Frog Bike, it does include the same brand of brakes (Tektro) as you have. You can start a few minutes in, as the start to the video is about brake installation and unnecessary (although watching the entire video can be helpful in understanding how they work).
If you are not comfortable adjusting your own brakes, for safety purposes, please give us a call and we'll help get it resolved for you.
