You aren't going to see a massive improvement from your current bike to a new one for $1000 imo. If it was me I'd either wait a bit longer to save some more money towards a better bike or upgrade your current one. New wheels maybe?

Ribble 872 probably or PX RT-57 or possibly boardman carbon.

What about the ribble gran Fondo, prob think best option would be new wheels etc on mekk, also looking for a turbo trainer any advice there

I use a Kurt Kinetic Road Machine turbo, had it a few years and is as good now as day one. The Ribble is a nice bike but not a big enough improvement on your current one.
