Product Details

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.

Availability:  Sold out.

Whether your son or daughter is riding around the neighborhood, riding to school or your local trails, the updated Meerkat is ready for adventure!  The Meerkat’s wide gear range and stable frame geometry excel on and off-road. 

The internally geared 5-speed hub is impervious to the rigors your elementary schooler will subject it to. It will shift smoothly for thousands of miles. Sealed hydraulic disc brakes stop surely every time.

              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!!
