    If I were spending that much on a bike I would definitely go to a decent bike shop and look at a few first as a lot of it comes down to personal preference. You can then always bargaon hunt on the internet once you know what make and model you like. I have a Specialized Global Sport which I got for about £300. Cross between a MTB and racer; ideal for roads and the odd bit of canal path etc.

    Size guide here evanscycles.com/help/ Evans are decent enough site.

    A 22" framed MTB is way too big dude, you'd suit a 19"

    I'm 6ft 1" and ride a 21"

    Am a bit perplexed, you want a top spec road OR mountain bike?

    I'd start with what you want it for and go from there. Top spec anything is fairly specific (IE mountain bikes will subdivide into downhill bikes, cross country etc.). Stewby's advice is also good, but again until you know the job you want to do, how do you begin to pick a tool to do it?
