Upgrading from a Btwin Triban 3

I'm currently riding a Btwin Triban 3 road bike, the red one everyone has!

I initially looked at upgrading components like wheels, tyres and brakes but when you look at the cost of doing that its more than i paid for the bike!

And it wouldn't solve my biggest nightmare which is the triple groupset being an arse to set up correctly.

So i'm looking at a new bike, i'm after something decent, carbon would be nice but it doesn't have to be.

Planet X bikes seem well specced compared to others, so for around a £1k what can you guys recommend?

Where are you based? Anywhere near planet x?

Only ask coz if you're looking at that sort of budget it's a quite well performing bike you'll get so best to go play try outs!

Just when i thought my options were limited you guys show me just how much choice there is for £1k!

So now i've added

and this

and

So 5 different bike, not sure where i'd sit on a rose, canyon or Dolan, but i guess i could get on a Cube at Evans, i've sat on a planet x and know what size i need for that...

I am 6'3", my current bike is a 63, but apparently Btwin measurements are different.

The Dolan showroom is an absolute trek from me being way on the other side of the country otherwise i'd definitely go.

Consider browsing for second hand ones on the net. For that size, you might get a sweet deal. Be patient.
