The best road bikes under £1,500, or $2,000 in the US, will give you a nice ride without causing too much strain on your wallet.

There's been a lot of bike price inflation over the last couple of years, so whereas £1,000 (or $1,500) used to be a good entry point for the best road bikes a few years ago, the best road bikes under £1000 now often come with entry level specs. If your budget can stretch to the best road bikes under £1,500 / $2,000 you can expect a significantly higher spec both in the frame and the components.
