I'm another who is surprised the Canyon Ultimate CF SLX never made it on this list. Suspect it's because Canyon only recently became available in the USA. It's a killerrr frame.
It's ALL about the bike.

Light, Cheap. Fits 28mm Tires, no stupid proprietary parts, great geometry, honestly it is one of the best frames ever made regardless of price.

+1 for the TCR Advanced SL, difficult to fault mine, but must admit to not having much experience with the very best frames different companies offer.
Also if you did get a built bike, they are shipping with built in shimano power meter, their wheels SLR0 wheels are a big good also.
