The Meerkat is a deft, sleek ride. Front and rear rack mounts and horizontal dropouts with a derailleur hanger offer unparalleled versatility. Internally geared 5-speed hub is impervious to the rigors your elementary schooler will subject it to. It will shift smoothly for thousands of miles. Sealed hydraulic disc brakes stop surely every time.
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.
