20% off Liv's Avail 1 Disc
WAS £999.00 | NOW £799.20


Giant launched their Liv sub-brand to focus on women's cycling some time ago, and their Avail range mirrors the strides they've made in endurance cycling that we've seen in the Defy range.

While both the Defy and Avail ranges feature similar componentry, the frames are very different.

Geometric suitability is key in the quest for comfort, and the Liv Avail range is specifically designed with women in mind.

The top of the range Avail 1 model, which comes disc-less as well, features a full Shimano 105 groupset - minus the chain which is a KMC X11L and the brake set which is TRP's Spyre mechanical disc brake and Tekro TK-R540 in the non-disc model.

You'll be getting some top quality components quality bits, even if you're only looking at the groupset. When we reviewed Shimano's 105 groupset, we loved it. It got a 9/10.

20% off Liv's Avail 2 Disc
WAS £849.00 | NOW £679.20


The Avail 2 Disc is a rung further down the quality ladder to the Avail 1, but the only real difference here is the groupset.

Where Shimano's 105 groupset hangs from the Avail 1, Shiman's Tiagra sits in all the important places on the Avail 2.

The bike represents phenomenal value, and Tiagra is a wonderful groupset. We should know, we've reviewed it:

20% off Liv's Avail 3


The Liv Avail 3 features some of Shimano's Sora groupset.

You'll notice this is the first non-disc brake equipped Avail, but it's still the same fantastic endurance bike package aimed at those cyclists who are looking to upgrade their riding experience from entry-level to something a little more comfortable and responsive. 

SRAM's PG950 cassette accompanies a KMC X9 chain and Tektro TK-R312 brakes alongside the Sora componentry.


20% off Liv's Avail 4


The final Avail on our list is Liv's entry level model which features Shimano's 16-speed Claris groupset.

The Avail 4 is perfect for those of you looking to get into road cycling, and at this price you'll struggle to find a 2016 model better suited to your needs any cheaper.


20% off Giant's Defy 0
WAS £999.00 | NOW £799.20


The first men's bike of the day is Giant's Defy 0.

With a mixture of Shimano's higher end 105 and Ultegra components, the Defy 0 offers fantastic value for riders who appreciate the responsiveness and weight advantages of a more advanced groupset.

The improved groupset, including a KMC X11L chain and Shimano BR561 brakes are what set the Defy 0 apart, and at just under £800 it's a bargain.


20% off Giant's Defy 1
WAS £899.00 | NOW £719.20


The Defy 1 sits one rung below the 0 on the Defy ladder of quality, and brings with it a full Shimano 105 groupset.

As we've already mentioned when we wrote about the Avail 1 above, we love the 105 groupset here at

Tektro's TK-R540 dual pivot brakes, and a KMC X11L chain complete the bike, which would be a great buy for any keen cyclist at £719.20


20% off Giant's Defy 1 Disc
WAS £999.00 | NOW £799.20


Just as the top two Avail models come in disc and disc-less models, the Defy range does too.

The Defy 1's disc brake equipped model is one of two disc brake models introduced to the range this year.

You're looking at an almost identical set up to the Defy 1 other than the TRP Spyre Alloy disc brakes and Giant P-R2 disc ready rims.

We love TRP's Spyre disc brakes here at We've had them in for test twice, and both times they've been received incredibly well.

Our man Edward Mason called them "Quite possibly the best mechanical disc brakes solution out there."

20% off Giant's Defy 2
WAS £749.00 | NOW £599.20


Moving a little further down the affordability ladder, the Defy 2 brings Shimano's Tiagra groupset to the party.

The 20 speed groupset is excellent value for money, targeted at riders who are looking to take a step up from their first road bike.


20% off Giant's Defy 2 Disc
WAS £849.00 | NOW £679.20


In a very similar vein to the Defy 1 Disc model, the Defy 2 Disc is almost identical to the Defy 2.

Obviously, you'll be getting TRP's Spyre Alloy mechanical disc brakes,  but you'll also be getting KMC's X10 chain, and Giant's S-R2 disc ready wheels.


20% off Giant's Defy 3
WAS £649.00 | NOW £519.20


We're moving down the ladder of affordability again, this time arriving at Giant's Shimano Sora equipped Defy 3.

The Defy 3 is a step up from the entry level Defy 4 which you can see below, and the majority Sora groupset is where the extra outlay takes you. That step up, along with a SRAM PG 950 cassette, and a KMC X9 chain, is well worth the money if your budget can reach that extra £100.


20% off Giant's Defy 4
WAS £525.00 | NOW £42.00


Finally, Giant's entry level Defy 4 is up there with the best possible first road bike options on the market.

Shimano's 16-speed Claris groupset is a fantastic place to start if you're just getting in to road cycling. If you want to learn a little more about it, check out our coverage of its unveiling below:
