LLiv is Gi­ant’s range of bikes for women, which have all been de­signed with the fe­male body in mind. Al­most ev­ery­thing has been tweaked, from frame ge­om­e­try to the mix of com­po­nents: shorter stems, brake levers closer to the bars, and women-spe­cific sad­dles. (There’s a ton of data on the web­site, if you want to dig deeper into their 3F phi­los­o­phy.)

The Avail 3 is a 2018 model, and of­fers great value. The frame is de­signed for a re­laxed rid­ing po­si­tion – more up­right than stretched out.

It has a Shi­mano Claris driv­e­train, and an un­der­stated colour scheme; and the top-bar brake levers are a nice touch – be­gin­ners can get fa­mil­iar with the bike with­out hav­ing to ride on the hoods.

It’s a svelte lit­tle bike at a very mod­est price
