  • The internally geared 3-speed rear hub enables your son or daughter to climb steep hills and move faster on long flats.

  • The Owl’s shifting mechanism is encased in an aluminum shell inside the rear hub. The bike will shift gears smoothly with no maintenance for thousands of miles - regardless of how many times it gets dropped or crashed.

  • Available in Very Orange, Cool Moss Green, Cleary Blue, Sorta Pink and AstroTurf Green

  • Best fit for riders with an inseam of 19" to 23" A rider with a 21" inseam will sit on the Owl with their bottom on the saddle, flat footed on the ground with the seat at its lowest position.

  • At that same saddle height, riders with 19” inseam will happily sit with only the balls of their feet on the ground. As long as a child has an inseam of 19”, their arms and torso are long enough so they can reach the handlebars comfortably.

  • Your first-grader will ride the Owl on trails, to school, all over the bike park and probably sleep with it in his room. (Sorry about that!)

  • All Cleary Bikes will accept knobby mountain bike tires for extreme off-road use

  • Tektro Junior V-Brakes - Front and rear hand brakes designed specifically for little hands

  • Slim, junior race-style vegan leather saddle designed to maximize a rider’s range of motion while minimizing chafing and weight

  • 5mm Allen skewer on front wheel

  • Internal cable routing

  • Water Bottle cage mounts on down tube

  • Three-piece crank and square taper bottom bracket

  • Reinforced steel fork

  • Grips, riser handlebars and brake levers designed for small hands (slightly wider than on the Hedgehog)

  • Expert bike geometry centers weight between the rider’s hands and seat, which creates a stable, quick-handling bike

  • 32 tooth chainring, 19t 3-speed hub
