About Cleary Bikes

We founded Cleary Bikes in 2014 to create rad bikes designed for kids.  Kids like to play with tools, they like cool colors and they enjoy a safe environment to do their thing.  Our bikes are all that.  They empower kids while keeping them included in family biking activities.

A bicycle launches a little boy or girl into a brand new world. That’s not to say that your child has to be a daredevil to love riding a bike. When a kid pushes off on his or her bike and rides to: the mailbox, the store, the park or to school, they become actively engaged, blazing their own paths to independence.

At Cleary Bikes, we believe that riding a bicycle should be fun. It certainly shouldn’t be stressful or scary. Which is why our lightweight kids bicycles are made to thrill children – physically, mentally and most of all, safely.

Based in beautiful Sausalito, California, the Cleary Bikes team has been riding bikes since we first threw a leg over the banana seat on a second-hand Huffy Dragster. We pedaled on through mountain bikes, road bikes, cross bikes, time-trial bikes – and then bikes for our children. And that's when it became clear: kids bikes needed something better. So we sought out to do just that.

We managed to keep the bikes clean just long enough to have pictures taken.  Then, people started swarming the bikes and riding them all over.  Fun.  And completely violative of our insurance policy.  Alas.

How to Fit a Bicycle

We at Cleary Bikes know that fit is important, especially for little ones just learning to ride.  " Bicycle fitting is a subject most people find quite mysterious.  Fitting systems with charts and graphs, computer software, measuring devices and "rules of thumb"...
