1: Unbox your new bike

Unboxing your new bike is an exciting moment. Carefully open the box and remove your new bike, taking care not to scratch or damage it.

Please check with your local authority on how to recycle the packaging responsibly. Let's contribute to keeping our planet green and clean.

2: Check and install your accessories

Check the contents of the box for your new bike accessories, such as reflectors, a bell, or mudguards, as specified in the product documentation. Fit them to your new bike using the brackets, screws and attachments provided. For additional help with attaching mudguards to your Frog bike please view the manuals here >>

Check the sticker on the fork of the bike to ensure the forks are facing forward correctly before proceeding to straighten and align the handlebars.
Step 3 Image 2
Loosen the two allen bolts that secure the handlebar stem to the forks. You don't need to completely remove these bolts, just loosen 1 full turn so the handlebars are easy to move.
Step 3 Image 3
Hold the wheel between your knees and gently rotate the the handlebars until straight. Take time and ensure the handlebars are perfectly straight before moving on to the next step.

Tighten both stem bolts to secure the handlebars, make sure these are hand tight. Do not over tighten. Once done hold the wheel with your knees again and turn the handlebars to confirm they are secure.

3: Align and tighten the handlebars

Before you hit the road, pavements, or trails, make sure that the handlebars have been turned and are perfectly straight, before tightening. This ensures precise steering and stability during rides.

Identify the pedals and ensure that you have the correct pedal for each side of the bike. The red pedal goes into the red crank on the Left of the bike. Set the other pedal aside to ensure they dont get mixed up.

Peel up the sticker on the crank to reveal the threaded pedal hole.

Align the thread with the hole and gently rotate the pedal by the bolt. The pedal should engage with the thread and turn easily. Ensure the thread is properly engaged to avoid damage to the pedal or crank. Do NOT use tools to tighten the pedal at this stage.

Once the pedal has engaged in the threads and you have tightened as far as you can by hand, use the pedal spanner to tighten the pedal a quarter turn, or until hand tight. Do not overtighten the pedals as this could cause damage to the pedal or crank. Repeat for the other pedal.

4: Attach the pedals

Attach the pedals to the bike, ensuring you match the left pedal with the left crank and the right pedal with the right crank. It is crucial that the pedals are in the correct crank and threaded the correct way to avoid damaging the pedal threads.

5: Set your saddle height

Adjust the saddle height to a level that provides a comfortable riding position. We recommend that feet be flat on the ground for beginners and on tip-toes for more confident riders. Finding the right height is essential to an efficient and comfortable ride. Take note of the maximum saddle height marking, the saddle must not be raised higher than this mark to ensure rider safety.

6: Check brake operation

Check the operation of the brakes before allowing the child to ride the bike. The brakes should feel firm and not pull to the bar. You can fine-tune the braking by adjusting the barrel adjuster positioned on the brake lever (as shown in the bottom left picture). Simply loosen or tighten it for precise control over your brakes.

Align the handlebar to the frame so that it’s straight. To ensure the forks are oriented in the right direction follow the forward pointing sticker that is positioned on the forks. Tighten the two hexagonal screws on the stem with the 5mm Allen key (as shown in step 3).

If further adjustment is required, see the Owners Manual for additional information.
