The redesigned 2020 Avail has already won over plenty riders and editors since its debut in June 2019. In April, the bike was awarded Bicycling Magazine’s Bike Award. Most recently, Peloton Magazine’s reviewing staff took the Avail Advanced Pro 1 for a spin and had great things to say about the bike’s comfortable women’s-specific endurance geometry with top-end features and spec.
“The compact endurance geometry really does provide the necessary comfort and support to ride all day,” said Peloton’s reviewer, citing the new Avail’s larger tire clearance (with 32c tires), compliant D-Fuse seatpost and handlebars, and Liv Contact SL saddle. “This adventure-ready bike handles just about whatever your ride throws at you, and makes it fun too.”
Peloton’s reviewer notes she is a smaller rider at 5-foot-1 and compliments Liv’s women’s-specific geometry that keeps the rider balanced and in the proper position on the bike.
“Smaller riders are pretty familiar with not having a bike that fits right,” she says. “All too often brands will just shrink down a frame and call it a day, forgetting that the frame needs to be proportionally adjusted. Reach is usually too long, creating an uncomfortable fit that only becomes more apparent on long days… Liv dials in a proper fit for smaller riders both through proper frame geometry and componentry, like correctly sized stems and handlebars.”
