Contrary to almost every other product on the market, most modern bikes are better value for money than their forebears. Some are simply cheaper for a given standard, while others, like this Liv Avail 1 benefits from a significant increase in quality and technology.
Everyone loves value for their hard earned money and Giant's women's range of bikes, now under the Liv, banner are happily part of this phenomenon.
The Liv Avail 1 is not the base model in the road bike range, but at just $1249, it certainly falls into the budget range of many buyers. Nobody wants to spend a fortune, especially if they are still in the 'seeing if they like it' phase.
Available in Medium and Small. Most women will be able to find the right frame size Avail to suit their height.
So this $1249 bike, with its sensibly chosen components and female specific sizing is an ideal point at which to begin a road cycling career.
