Finding the right road bike can be daunting, especially on a budget. Which set of wheels will become a trusted companion? It's essential to have a road bike you can rely on that also provides comfort and durability, below are my top ten road bikes for under £1000.

Focus Cayo

With a 12k lightweight Carbon frame, fork and ultegra groupset, the Focus Cayo offers fantastic features in this price range. To top it off, Cycling weekly awarded the Focus Cayo the best bike under £1000 award. Clearly a great choice for the avid racer or tour enthusiast.

Boardman Team Alloy

The Boardman Team Alloy, set on a triple butted aluminium frame, provides a great blend of performance and comfort. With a Shimano 105 groupset and FSA Gossamer chain set, it's a great choice for under £1000.

Verenti Millook

For a great choice for comfort over long distance choose the Verenti Millook. With a carbon rear end and SRAM’s Rival kit, this bike is ideal for long distance riders.

Giant Defy 1

Giant's Defy has consistently delivered fantastic road bikes and the Giant Defy 1 is no exception. Boasting an all new 2012 Shimano 105 groupset, aluminium frame and weighing in at just 8.87kg, the Giant Defy 1 provides unparalleled performance and responsiveness.

Cube Attempt

Another big hitter in this price range, the Cube Attempt 2012 model boasts a Shimano 105 groupset but the real highlight? Fulcrum Racing 7 tyres, usually found on much pricier road bikes.

Specialized Allez Elite

Popular with beginner and intermediate riders, the Specialized Allex Elite 2012 model has great handling and performance and comes in slightly cheaper than the other rides in this range.

Trek 2.1

Wickedly fast with fantastic handling precision, the Trek 2.1 2012 model is another high performing road bike. It's 200 Series Alpha Aluminium shaped and hydro formed frame provides comfort and weight despite its aggressive design.

Bianchi Via Nirone 7 Xenon

A road bike with a difference, the Bianchi Via Nirone 7 Xenon is infused with K-VID technology to absorb vibration. Combine this with it's impressive mix of Shimano 105 and Ultegra components and you've got a road bike that'll go the distance.

KHS Flite 500

Providing carbon chainstays along with a double butted aluminium frame, the KHS Flite 500 is perfect for long days in the saddle providing steady comfort and a smooth ride.

Ribble Winter Trainer

At under £750 the Ribble Winter Trainer provides fantastic features with a fantastic price tag. With an aluminium frame, a Deda carbon fork and Campagnolo Veloce groupset, this bike is ideal for winter training and commuting.
