The second is a tri-specific bike, but maybe not the best for group
road riding. Both these would be available through Aggieland Cycling,
though I'm not sure what they have in stock this second. Aggieland is
where I would go to buy locally. Aggieland also carries Giant
Bicycles (but Giant didn't always supply MSRPs on their website).
For ~$1k you are talking an aluminum frame, maybe some carbon on it
(seat stays, fork), and Tiagra/105 components most likely.
I hate to tell you this, Dan, but the first half of the money you are
going to spend is on the bike. The second half of the money is
everything you will need to go *with* your new bike!
This cost goes down when you get up to 5 bikes (ahem, cough, cough)
but it doesn't go away.
