    • The Meerkat's 410mm chain stays and 971mm wheel base are shorter than on any other 24" bike available in stores.  Why does that matter?  The "wheelbase" on a bicycle is the distance between where the front and rear wheels contact the ground.  Chainstay length (bottom bracket to rear hub distance) is about half the wheelbase.  The Meerkat's shorter wheelbase means it will steer more quickly than a bike with a longer wheelbase.  The Meerkat is easier to control, quicker to stop, quicker to accelerate and more fun to ride.  The fun factor is key.   
    • The Meerkat's light weight - 24 lbs - is another reason your child will climb more easily and control the bike better.
