Meerkats can do a lot of things, including musically advising lions, hiding in holes, and barking at predators. Cleary's Meerkat 24-inch bike cannot do any of these things. What it does offer your two-wheeling youngster is an easy-shifting 9-speed drivetrain and a smooth, lively ride thanks to its aluminum frame. This sweet ride's frame geometry delivers an equal spread of weight between the rider's hands and seat, making the bike as stable and agile as possible. Front and rear hydraulic disc brakes ensure proper stopping ability even in wet conditions.
