I'm incredibly excited to share that starting this August Gladys Bikes will be a dealer of Liv Cycling USA! So, why all the excitement?

- Liv is a new, stand-alone brand from Giant Bikes that is focused exclusively on making rad bikes for women, by women.

- All too often "women's" bikes are just slightly smaller versions of the "men's" models, perhaps covered in a bath of floral patterns, and then rounded out with a downgraded build spec. This is a brand that takes women and their bodies seriously. The bikes are not only designed with sizes and geometry that makes sense, but their component choices are rock solid too. Also, they seem to get that there are more colors in the rainbow than pink.

- Liv has a huge range that respects everyone from the new rider to the certified bike nerd. From a $640(!!) entry level Avail road bike, to a legit Brava 'cross bike complete with all the fixin's and just about everything above, outside and in between, they've pretty much got something for everybody.

Be on the lookout for some Liv bikes to start landing on the shop floor within the next week or so. In the meantime, for more info on their bikes check out: http://www.giant-bicycles.com/en-us/bike-finder/women/allcategories/?level=all
