Cleary Meerkat 24" 5-Speed Bike
Prepare for your child to drop you on the first climb!
Fits: Children ages 7-11 years old, between 48" - 60" (4' - 5') in height, with an inseam length ranging from 22" - 26". The Meerkat has a low bottom bracket height, which allows a rider with a 22" inseam to comfortably start out on the Meerkat. The seat tube angle on the Meerkat allows the bike fit to grow along with the rider. The seat moves up and back as you increase saddle height, so even a 5’ tall rider will fit the bike well.

Great Bike. Great Service.
We already knew we loved Cleary. This is bike number four! It's a great bike, and it arrived quickly and in great shape. Usually we buy directly from Cleary, but this one was on sale. I'll check here when we need a bigger bike.
Another Solid Cleary
This is the 3rd Cleary bike we've purchased for our oldest, and the frame and components are really solid. The internal gear hub and disc brakes are nice features too. We had purchased another brand's 20" bike, and the upgrade in quality on the Cleary is noticeable. Highly recommend.
Could not be happier with our purchase!
From Owl to Meerkat
We purchased an Owl 3 yrs ago for our Grandson for Christ Maslow. He has outgrown the Owl and wished for a Meerkat. Since his experie.nce with the Owl was so positive, it was a very easy decision to graduate to the Meerkat.
One thing missing
I was a bit surprised that the Meerkat doesn't have water bottle bosses. Even the Owl does.
