Hi all

I had been commuting to work for a about a year using my Father's 15 year old Raliegh Road Bike. However, I recently moved house and now live about 10 miles from work and as a result I've resorted back to driving to work. I've decided that I want to start cycling to work again. I'm looking to get an "entry level" road bike with pannier mounts (as I don't fancy using a back pack for such a distance).

I don't want to spend a huge amount but basically I have about £1000 to play with.

So here's the question... what bike would you recommend and what set up? I'm going to be carrying ~5 kilos on the back of the bike and in all weather.

I'm going to Manchester next weekend - birthday weekend with old uni friends - and hopefully I can treat myself to a new bike whilst I'm there. I'd just like some ideas as to what I should be looking for, and some general advice if that's ok.

Thanks in advance for any and all advice...
