A Trek 1000 or a giant OCR3 are both around $999

At $700 you are right at the bottom end. You could go to Cell Bikes.

In the end you get what you paid for.

You can get cheaper with flat bar road bikes, like the CRX range.

Have a good search for second hand bikes too. Uni notice boards would be a good start.

I have a Cell S3300. I reckon its a great buy.

That said I am a novice, and a (very) casual rider so YMMV...
