Cleary Meerkat 24" 5-Speed Kids Bike
The PERFECT bike for older grade schoolers and middle schoolers.
Fits: Children ages 7-10 years old, with an inseam length ranging from 22" - 26".
Your child's ticket to adventure!
The Meerkat 24 inch kids bike comes stock with a Sturmey Archer 5 speed trigger shifter paired with a 5 speed internally geared Sturmey Archer hub. This combination equates to quick, efficient shifts without the worry of chain drops or being out of gear.
If your adventurer wants to pack her tools, water, granola bars, lucky keychain, compass, extra socks, apple, walkie-talkie… she can take it with her on the Meerkat. Front and rear rack mounts make adding a basket or rear rack a cinch and usher in a world of bike packing opportunity.
No matter how bikes fit into their growing universe, there’s one thing young riders all have in common: the need for high-quality, confidence-inducing hydraulic disc brakes.

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.
