Unfortunately, a Turner will cost more than a $1,000 unless used.
Personally I WOULD consider used as an option.
For what you've described, I would recommend a USED Intense Spyder VPP! A Santa Cruz Blur would rank up there. The Turner, and throw in the Ellsworth Truth for good measure. Don't rule out Titus.
Throw in a Specialized Epic for my vote in the production frame category.
Not a big fan of Trek, so the Fuel for me doesn't cut it.
Same thing for Gary Fisher, but the Sugar does get good reviews. I personally don't feel right on Genesis Geometry that they embrace.
