Whether they're ripping the local trails or just cruising around the neighborhood, our kids stay safe and confident aboard the Cleary Meerkat 26-inch bike. It's built for kids who've outgrown 24-inch wheels but are not quite big enough to ride an adult bike. This makes it perfect for grade schoolers and middle schoolers, or kids roughly 10 - 12 years old. The steel frame is lightweight and comfortable to ride, and the geometry is low and stable to inspire confidence as they ride over curbs and rocks. As far as components go, the bike features an easy-to-use 5-speed drivetrain and comes with Tektro disc brakes that have great stopping power.
