I have a large Ellsworth Truth bike (black smoke) I am considering selling also. Frame is a 2008 warranty replacement with the exception of the seatstays which are 01 (original year of bike) Cane Creek disc wheels, Avid Juicy 5 hyd brakes are from 08. 01 parts Rock Shox Duke fork, XTR shifters, XT octalink crank, XT rear. I keep swaping parts over to new frame- they keep working.
I don't ride it much anymore

legrand, $1000 will indeed get you a pretty good bike from a reputable bike shop, but the part spec will probably need upgrades after a season or so. twright's Stumpy is a great bike with some really nice components, and I'm sure that he'll give you a great deal. I nearly bought it from him last spring...

that Motobecane used to be a good brand, then the company went bankrupt. Bikes direct bought the names, along with other old storied names like Dawes and put them on aluminum frames from the Kisesis factory with lower end parts. In all they are purported to be decent for the money but often come with trashy wheels and some service needed right out of the box.

For $1000 this time of year you should be able to get a very nice bike with front suspension from a local shop. I have both a 26 and 29 bike and have ridden both a fair bit, I don't think one is better than the other.

I think you will like a more modern bike a lot better than your old one, they have come a long way in many ways. For riding around in the mud, the driveline remains the achillies heel.
