Sometimes a bike comes into Machinery Row that makes us all smile and say, "This is what we want to see in more bicycles". The Avail AR 3 doesn't try to be anything else other than a useful bike for all kinds of riding. Day trips, club rides and excursions across roads rough and smooth. It does everything pretty darn well.


An ALUXX-Grade aluminum frame and Advanced-Grade carbon fiber fork make up the "chassis" of the Avail AR 3, keeping the bike light and strong over every hill and dale. The fork sits in a tapered OverDrive head tube, improving handling in high-speed turns and descents. The Avail's long wheelbase and stable handling make every mile more comfortable. An upright fit allows a wider range of riders -and rider flexibilities- to get comfortable for extended excursions. Mounts for fenders and bottle cages add practicality to the Avail AR 3.


Shimano's 9-speed Sora shifters and derailleurs add a precise feel to gear changes, while A 50/34T Shimano Sora compact crankset and 11-34T Shimano cassette boasts a massive gearing range for attacking challenging terrain. Alloy S-R2 wheels are wrapped with wide 700x32c Giant S-R3 AC tires, bringing a smooth feel over broken tarmac and hardpan gravel alike. Cable-operated Tektro disc brakes help keep reign in speed in all conditions, wet or dry. The Avail AR 3 features a clever D-Fuse alloy seatpost that soaks up impacts from potholes and pavement transitions, while a women's Liv Approach saddle adds a comfy perch for extended rides. An alloy Connect road handlebar and alloy Contact stem complete this excellent all-rounder.
