at $1000, finding a decent full suspension for your needs is going to be tough. there are "trail" hardtails in your price range that have 11-speed drivetrains, like the norcos listed here in our product guide - http://www.vitalmtb.com/product/category/Bikes,3/riding_type/all_mountain/?discontinued=false&rear_travel%5B%5D=hardtail&cat=Product&price%5B%5D=500_750&price%5B%5D=750_1000&cat=Product ... more »
