Plenty out there to chose from. Don't be scared off by a nice aluminium bike. My CAAD10 is a great bike and the Specialized Allez is decent.

Don't know where you stand on Planet X but they have a decent sale on some of their frames taking them to incredible prices.
An actual TT frame going for £378 (considering that myself as I have a few triathlons coming up in 2017 and may do more) or depending on how flexible your £500 budget is the Carbon Aero road frame I believe recently won some awards and is on there for £697. Plenty other frames in between prices depending on size availability etc.
Well worth a look.

But I wonder what advantage larger tyres really have and whether the recent trend is just a fashion. OK it depends on your weight but at 62 kg I don't find any significance in comfort with 25 mm run at 80 psi that 23 mm at 85 psi. And as for improved aerodynamics: I've not had them in a wind tunnel but the 25 mm Mavic Ykison tyres on compatible Ksyrium Pro rims doesn't look any different in terms of fit than 23 mm Pro 4 on a narrower rim. I took the Yksions off and replaced them with some trusty 25 mm Pro 4's as they cut and puncture too easily and again visually, the fit of Pro 4 on Ksyrium is indistinguishable.
