Plenty of options out there at that pricepoint - Bike Exchange search to narrow it, then some legwork to decide on what is right for you.

How do they go navigating through bollards, or chicanes near railway crossings? :wink:

There is no best.
Obviously top spec electronic groupset, personal preference of brand.
Choose aero vs weight and ride smoothness.
Aftermarket saddle.
Disc/Rim your preference.

Last season's runouts can be half price and get last year's very best elite.
