MEERKAT 26” 5 SPEED
Built specifically for riders who are not quite ready for an adult-size bicycle, but have outgrown a 24 inch bike, the Meerkat is their ticket to adventure and independence.
The Meerkat is a kids all terrain bike that is fast, sleek and styled to appeal to the 10 to 12-year-old* in your life. The 26 inch wheels roll that much faster than 24’s and provide a solid platform for taller riders. The Sturmey Archer trigger shifter and 5 speed internally geared hub offer maintenance free, buttery smooth shifting for thousands of miles. The Meerkat 26 inch is a practical bike, comfortable in urban settings because it’s easy to lock up, has no derailleur to get bent in a bike rack and rolls smoothly over the most pothole filled route.
It’s just as capable on a weekend bikepacking trip, just add knobby tires up to 2.35” and and your Meerkat is ready to roll for days in the backcountry.

Yes the standard Greenfield center mount works great on the Meerkat.
Yes, a short travel fork (80mm or less for 24”, 100mm or less for 26”) with a straight 1-⅛” steerer tube will work on the Meerkat. It will also need to use a 9mm QR axle to be compatible with the stock front wheel.
