When your 2-3.5-year-old rider is ready to take flight on two wheels, the Cleary Gecko is the bike to do it. The Gecko provides a seamless transition from a push-bike, making it a safe and fun foray into the world of two-wheeled adventure. This 12-inch lightweight kids bike will be your little one's ticket to freedom. The single-speed drivetrain makes learning to pedal simple and intuitive. There's a handle into the bottom of the saddle so you can easily help your child balance before they ride off on their own! Don't worry, they'll be back. Cleary recommends measuring your child's inseam and referencing their size chart to determine the best fit. The Gecko best fits riders with an inseam of 14" to 18". First-time riders feel safest with their bottom on the saddle and their feet flat on the ground. A child with a 15" inseam will fit the Gecko with the integrated seat/seat post dropped as low as possible. Once kids get comfortable on two wheels, they'll want to sit on the saddle with only the balls of their feet on the ground. Thus, a confident rider with a 15" inseam and a first-time rider with a 17" inseam each will feel comfortable set-up with the same position on their bikes.
Meet the Hedgehog. This 16-inch kid's bike unlocks a whole new world to preschoolers. The lightweight, durable frame of this little rig is paired with modern geometry and a medium gear ratio, equally adept at climbing and winding it up on the way down. The Hedgehog is confidence inspiring—you'll watch your child progress quickly, easily rolling over obstacles that once seemed all-too-daunting. This bike features hand brakes, just like an adult bicycle, but sized perfectly for little hands. The package comes together in kid-loved and parent-approved colors. Cleary recommends measuring your child's inseam and referencing their size chart to ensure the best fit.
The ride to elementary school just got real! The Cleary Owl is a tough-as-nails freedom machine. The Owl comes with 20-inch wheels, this means it rolls fast over small obstacles and bigger jumps. Weighing in at just 19 pounds, the Owl has a freewheel and a rigid front fork paired with 20" all-terrain tires to give this little rig plenty of clearance. Bigger stair drops, wider jumps, and longer adventures. To determine the best fit, Cleary suggests measuring your child's inseam and referencing their size chart. The Owl is best fit for riders with an inseam measurement of 19-23". A rider with a 21" inseam will sit on the Owl with their bottom on the saddle, flat-footed on the ground with the seat at its lowest position. At that same saddle height, riders with a 19" inseam will happily sit with only the balls of their feet on the ground. As long as a child has an inseam of 19", their arms and torso are long enough so they can reach the handlebars comfortably.
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. The Meerkat is a kid's 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" 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. It's just as capable on a weekend bikepacking trip, just add knobby tires up to 2.35" and your Meerkat is ready to roll for days in the backcountry. To determine the best fit, Cleary suggests measuring your child's inseam and referencing their size chart. The Meerkat best fit for riders with an inseam of 22" to 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.
