Cleary Bikes offers both neighborhood whips and a couple of hard hitting steel hardtails. Its tough not to love a steel hardtail as they last forever, offer a more damp ride and have that nice thinner tubed aesthetic. With years of experience in designing and manufacturing kids bikes, Cleary has really refined their offerings by delivering their builds with great value. Thanks to Cleary for providing a test bike.

"This is a very well rounded bike. With our 9 and 12 year old testers, this bike found time at the dirt jumps, the local trail system and ripping around the neighborhood. Not all kids mountain bikes can handle true MTB terrain, this is one of them. At $860 USD, the build and capabilities of this bike make it a great choice for the hard charging MTB kid who is entertaining a hardtail. " -Colin
