Product Details

Prepare for your child to drop you on the first climb!

Availability:  Available colors are in stock for immediate shipment.

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.

Seriously fun. The Meerkat brings a healthy dose of excitement to your 7 to 10-year-old shredder. 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. Yep, the Meerkat’s got those, too.
The Meerkat’s sealed hydraulic disc brakes (front and rear) stop surely, regardless of weather.

Bigger adventure. More fun. More freedom. It all comes together on the Meerkat.

              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.

              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.

              Off she went!

              Dealing with Ready, Set, Pedal was nothing short of excellent! Customer service is superior in every way! Our grand daughter jumped on her new Meerkat and we had to hustle to catch up! She was comfortable right away even though she is JUST tall enough to fit with the seat ALL the way down. Her words, "Speed is my friend!" The family has already had some epic rides with Tenley on her beautiful new pink Cleary Meerkat! Thanks again, Ready, Set, Pedal!!
