These bikes are light weight, making Meerkats easy to handle and less intimidating for little riders. Cleary designs all bikes with a low center of gravity, resulting in a very stable, easy-to-balance ride. The Meerkat comes with front and rear rack and fender mounts so this bike is ready for the Elementary School commute in all weather. The internal hub gears mean this bike will shift perfectly for your Elementary Schooler, no matter how tough they are on their bike. This kid's bike is made out of real bicycle components, not toys. Hydraulic disc brakes function more like a button-push than a lever-pull so these are easy to brake with little hands. The bottom line is this is the safest bike you can get for your child.
