All of our innovative bicycles come with front and rear hand brakes. Every frame has a protective sealant under its lead-free paint to prevent dents, dings and rust. Our fun and colorful Cleary seats don't rattle or flop around; they clamp securely down with a bolt.
The Gecko, Hedgehog and Owl lightweight kids bikes have no derailleurs, so nothing will block the chain because the chain always turns in alignment. To put it simply, Cleary Bikes ride smoothly and silently day after day after day; we guarantee it.
On top of all of this, Cleary Bikes are easy on the support crew... you. Traveling with Cleary Bikes is simple because you can easily remove the front wheels with a basic 5mm Allen wrench. Then with the front wheel off, you can fit our lightweight Starfish bike in a suitcase. All of our Cleary Bikes fit fork-mounted racks, and every part is a real bike part so maintenance is a snap.
Balance bikes, or scoot bikes, are bicycles made without pedals designed for little, little kids just learning how to balance on two wheels. With our focus on creating the best lightweight kids bikes available, we understand that learning to balance is a crucial step to success.
But when we researched what was out there and listened to what parents were looking for in balance bikes, we discovered they generally do not come with brakes.
When riding a bicycle, we think it's important that children be able to stop. Learning and mastering the function of braking is just as crucial to riding a bike as balancing is, which is why the Cleary Starfish 12" Balance Bike is made with brakes.
