Bicycling.com 2016 Buyer’s Guide: Best Kids’ Bikes

Cleary does one thing and does it really, really well: It crafts well-thought-out bikes for kids—and only kids. The 24-inch Meerkat is the newest bike in the Cleary line, and it picks up where the 20-inch Owl model leaves off. It has easy-to-use hydraulic disc brakes, a 9-speed drivetrain with a single ring up front, and a kid-sized saddle and grips for comfort. The durable steel frame is equipped with an equally tough steel fork. The rigid fork is suspension corrected, so adding a fork with some cush is incredibly simple. Available in Very Orange, Deep Blue, Sorta Pink, Red, and AstroTurf.
