Liv Avail SL 2 Disc Women's 2018

This is like the regular Liv Avail SL 2 Women's sportive road bike upgraded with TRP Spyre mechanical disc brakes and a Giant D-Fuse Composite seatpost.

The Benefits of Disc Brakes
Proven for over a decade on mountain bikes and better quality hybrids, the benefits of disc brakes are now becoming more and more recognised on road bikes. Moving the brakes from the mud and rain-attracting wheel rims to the relatively clean hubs makes for an improvement in the brakes’ all-weather all-conditions performance. Disc brake pads are much harder so they last much longer. That's why disc brakes tend to need far less maintenance compared with rim brakes - they don't require such frequent adjustment to compensate for brake pad wear. The wheel rims should also last much longer now that they are no longer being worn down by the brake pads.

TRP Spyre disc brakes
TRP (Tektro Racing Products) Spyre disc brakes deliver confidence-inspiring all-weather performance. Unlike the majority of mechanical disc brakes, which only have one moving piston, TRP Spyre disc brakes have two. Both pistons move equally against the rotor. The result: more consistent and even braking performance, less likelihood of brake rub and less maintenance required.

'TRP Spyre mechanical disc brakes are the best non-hydraulic road bike and cyclo-cross stoppers we've used.' road.cc.

Giant D-Fuse Seatpost
The Giant D-shaped seatpost helps damp bad vibes that would otherwise be transmitted from unsmooth road surfaces. Also, being D-shaped, it's impossible to set the saddle up squint when it's mounted to a Giant D-Fuse Seatpost. The Carbon composite version of the D-Fuse seatpost, spec'd here, is even more shock damping than the alloy version.

Giant-built Aluxx SL frame and Composite fork
Lighter weight and more compliant and shock absorbing than standard Aluxx frame tubing, Aluxx SL frame tubes are a finer-grain double-butted 6011 aluminium alloy for optimal strength:weight ratio. The result: arguably the best aluminium frame for the money.

Giant's Hybrid Composite fork combines carbon legs for excellent shock damping and steering precision with an OverDrive tapered aluminium steerer to help eliminate brake judder.

Good Gear
Reliable sure-shifting Shimano Tiagra is Shimano's 2x10 STI road bike drivetrain. Its wide gear range via the Shimano Tiagra 34/50 chainset and 11-32 cassette will get you over near-any ridable road.

Sound Wheels
Lighter weight 700x25 folding tyres on Giant's own wheels help ensure this is one smooth-rolling bicycle.

Bar top levers
Noting that many women don't appreciate being stretched out on the drops over the whole bike ride, the Liv Avail comes with bar-top brake levers to augment the standard drop bar STI levers.

Endurance Road Bike Geometry
Liv classic road bike frame geometry (72 degree head tube angle / 74 degree seat tube angle for medium-size frame) delivers a fast, engaging ride with engineered-in comfort. The Avail remains a true road bike. It just happens to be designed to be less stretched out and more comfortable for most riders, especially over longer distances. That's why endurance road bikes such as the Liv Avail are often referred to as comfort road bikes or sportive bikes.
