Because Frog Bikes recently updated the prices of their bikes, we thought we should take another look at our “How GroBikes is Cheaperer” blog post from last year and pass on what we found. The results were both surprising, and not…
It’s official: results from GroBikes’ first (and extremely serious and scientific) Fit Survey conducted at this year’s Toronto International Bicycle Show are out and show that a whopping 92% of children and adults agree that how a bicycle fits matters!
Online sustainability journal TreeHugger.com interviewed our founder, Marc, while we were at the Wychwood Barns EcoFair.
A few days later, they published a great little article about us (link), highlighting how GroBikes' subscription model is a more sustainable alternative to buying bikes for children.
Have a read!
Part of GroBikes’ mission is to make it financially easier for parents to give their children access to high quality bikes. Because our bikes are so well-made and well-maintained, we are able to earn back our investment over a longer period of time, keeping our subscription prices low, saving parents up to 45% of the total cost of providing a child a high-quality bike up to the age of 10 years old.
In a highly scientific experiment to see how much of a difference bicycle size can make, our founder, Marc, competed in the Barrie Triathlon last weekend riding one of our 20" wheel bikes that we recommend for children aged 6 - 8 years old. (Did we mention that he's 6' 2 and a lot older than 8 years old?)
