The Meerkat 26 inch 5 speed fills a sweet spot for older grade schoolers and middle schoolers. 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.
*Refer to our size chart to find the best fit for your child based on inseam.

The Meerkat best fit for riders with an inseam of 22″ to 26″. The Meerkat has a low bottom bracket height, which allows a rider with a 22″ inseam to comfortably start out on the Meerkat. The seat tube angle on the Meerkat allows the bike fit to grow along with the rider. The seat moves up and back as you increase saddle height, so even a 5’ tall rider will fit the bike well.
