Best Racer For Around £1000?

Hi guys - I'm new here, so sorry if this is a question that gets asked every few days.

I've been happy with my old GT hybrid for the last couple of years (it gets me to and from work every day) but I've finally had enough of guys on racers overtaking me. :D

I've got about £1000 that I can spend on a new bike - but obviously I'm a little lost as to what I should be going for.

I've heard good things about the Trek 1.7.

I'd be very grateful for any advice / links / Yoda-esque guidance.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Caligari, welcome to the forum.

    There's quite an in depth discussion going on in the Buyer's Advice section...

    No normally one of those people that just posts a link to another discussion, but there's some good info on there that is well worth a read. Hope I've not offended you or made the forum seem snobbish about repeat posts.
    I have nothing more to say on the matter.
