Cleary Meerkat 26" 5-Speed Kids Bike
The PERFECT bike for older grade schoolers and middle schoolers.
Fits: Children ages 10-12 years old, with an inseam length ranging from 22" - 26". 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.
Your child's ticket to adventure!
The Meerkat is a kids all terrain bike that is fast, sleek and styled to appeal to the 10 to 12-year-old* in your life. The 26 inch wheels roll that much faster than 24’s and provide a solid platform for taller riders. The Sturmey Archer trigger shifter and 5 speed internally geared hub offer maintenance free, buttery smooth shifting for thousands of miles. The Meerkat 26 inch is a practical bike, comfortable in urban settings because it’s easy to lock up, has no derailleur to get bent in a bike rack and rolls smoothly over the most pothole filled route.
Built specifically for riders who are not quite ready for an adult-size bicycle, but have outgrown a 24 inch bike, the Meerkat is their ticket to adventure and independence.
It’s just as capable on a weekend bike packing trip, just add knobby tires up to 2.35” and and your Meerkat is ready to roll for days in the backcountry.
Bigger adventure. More fun. More freedom. It all comes together on the Meerkat.
