Frog is an Indian Bicycle brand. Their range includes Hybrid, MTB and City Bicycles for Men, Women and Children. This fairly new entrant to the Indian Bicycle market has come out with an extensive range with numerous designs and colours. We got the opportunity to test ride the Frog Plus Wanderer 700C and here is what we thought.
Weight: 14.3 kgs
The Frog Plus Wanderer 700C is built on a strong yet lightweight TIG welded Steel frame. This frame has thin tubes with neatly welded edges. The conventional geometry was comfortable to ride with a slanting top tube. The frame was responsive and definitely helped ride fast and contributed to easy climbing on flyovers and other road inclines. The rigid fork was bladed in shape which made it light at the front.
The Wanderer 700C which I test rode came in a full Red colour frame with Yellow and Black as the secondary colours for the text and graphics. The matte finish paint job along with the contrasting Red and Yellow colours made the Bicycle stand out on the road. The thin tubes, colour coded saddle and brake cables immensely enhanced the aesthetics of this bicycle.
The Frog Plus Wanderer 700C comes equipped with a Single-Speed drivetrain. The pedalling was easy on flat and rough surfaces. It is a bit of a struggle to pedal on inclines which will require extra effort. Positives of a Single-Speed drivetrain is that it is easy to maintain and simple to ride.
This Hybrid Bicycle’s stopping power is handled by a pair of Purk Mechanical Disc brakes at the front and rear. These brakes were powerful, safe and balanced on dry and wet roads. Both interval braking and jamming of brakes felt in control during the test ride.
The handlebar on this bicycle was both comfortable and wide enough to give the rider an open chested riding posture.
The Wanderer 700C rolls on a pair of 700x35C stock slick tires. These tires were fast rolling on urban roads and the tread pattern was enough to get good traction on tar surfaces.
The stock Frog Saddle was wide and had a lot of cushioning to make the rider comfortable and soreness free on bumpy rides.
