Remember that feeling of freedom as a kid? Bikes empower kids to learn about our world in a way that is free of a screen. Cleary Bikes recognizes that kids become engaged when they have the independence to ride around wherever they choose.
Designed to be fun, not stressful and scary, Cleary bikes roll smooth, quiet and provide a thrill for kids. The 4 bikes that have really cool names, Owl, Hedgehog, Gecko and Starfish. The intent with the bikes was to make them simple enough to last through the abuse a kid can inflict, yet also be enough of a “real bike” to teach them proper riding techniques and keep the weight down.
The Owl is for the older kids, with 20″ wheels, but weighing only 19.1lbs. Cleary concentrated on building the bikes as durable and simple as possible, so it will work well, and for a long time on the trail, half-pipe or on the way to school. The Owl comes in blue, orange or grey for $345
The Hedgehog weighs in at just 16lbs with 16″ wheels. It is available in cream, blue, green and orange for $310
The smallest of the models with a drivetrain, the 12″ wheeled Gecko is an amazing 15.8lbs. Selling for $250, it is available in cream, orange, blue and pink.
The smallest of the models, the Starfish does not have a drivetrain. Designed as a kick bike, it has 12″ wheels, and is $199.
All Cleary Bikes arrive 99% assembled. This is a pretty nice feature to prevent most home mechanic dads from trying to adjust the brakes with a pipe wrench.

I started Cleary Bikes to give kids the tools to try cool stuff. My son started adventuring on his balance bike and now he jumps off Navy Destroyers. He's twelve. I'm very proud.
My son didn't jump on a bike, mind you. He's a skateboarder. His balance bike and various pedal bikes he rode by 3 taught him coordination...
Our little bike company enjoyed our 4th Sea Otter this year. Amazing.
The two Hedgehogs pictured here are each three years old and they still ride smoothly and look great. It feels like we started a little pedal revolutionwhen we rolled into Sea Otter in our VW Vanagon loaded inside and out with bikes. Our first conversations were:
