need help choosing a bike

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

need help choosing a bike

i've browsing through threads here reading up stuff about road bikes

i've decided to get my own road bike now and was wondering if anyone could point me at the right direction.

i've been cycling around my area, the roads are a little bumpy at some areas, but great for most part.
and i'm also planning to cycle to class, there are some pavements(don't know whether it matters much)

so i was wondering whether to get aluminium or steel frame or something else. i've also narrow my search to lemond, bianchi, trek, specialized.

looking to spend around $1000 on the bike.

thank you
have a great day
