Cleary Bikes, the only U.S. brand tailored specifically for kids, introduces a line of lightweight bikes created to motivate kids to ride to the best of their abilities. Cleary Bikes’ mission is to provide kids with real tools through every level of riding, to ultimately take off independently with confidence and ease. From exploring the neighborhood to adventuring out on mixed terrain, Cleary Bikes prides itself on being the brand of choice for kids and parents, inspiring them to enjoy life on a bike.
Jeff Cleary, former professional triathlete, mountain bike racer and dad, started Cleary Bikes after years of planning and designing with frame builders, bike shops, parents, kids, bike enthusiasts and cycling professionals. What really sets Cleary Bikes apart from stock kids bikes is that each bike comes with front and rear hand brakes, optimized for tiny hands. In addition, the bikes have a clean, simple aesthetic with bold colors like Very Orange, Cool Moss and AstroTurf Green in matte finishes, eye catching to even the youngest of critics. The vibrant color options throughout the Cleary Bikes line allow the bikes to align with each child’s personality. “Cleary Bikes are reliable and fun, existing to empower kids to enjoy their bike in every way imaginable.
We provide a lifetime warranty to ensure kids can ride hard, then hand down their old rig to the next lucky sibling,” says founder, Jeff Cleary. “We strongly believe kids should have the option to use hand brakes early on to learn from a true riding experience, rather than struggle with a coaster brake.” Cleary Bikes ensures prevention against dents, dings and scratches thanks to a protective rustproofing sealant under its lead-free paint and a protective matte clear coat over the paint.
Their 2016 line consists of five models: The Starfish 12” Balance Bike; The Gecko 12” Single Speed; The Hedgehog 16” Single Speed; The Owl 20” Single Speed and The Meerkat 24” bike with 9 gears and hydraulic disc brakes.
