Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I am in the market for a 1000$ road bike. There are several online like mercier, monteblanc, and leader to name a few. To get the same equipment on a trek or cannondale you would spend twice as much.Are these bikes worth having to put them together and ajust to save 1000$?

If your savings are substantial spend $50.00 on an LBS assembly, unless you're extremely competent you'll miss out on the best thing about a brand new bike, the silky smooth first ride.

Buy a used higher end bike. You can easily get a year old $1800 bike for under $1000 via ebay and craigslist.
