    Ellsworth Truth - differences between year models

    Hi,

    I am considering purchasing either a 2006 or 2008 Truth and would greatly appreciate any feedback or information about differences between the two models. I can see that that the 2008 has an asymmetrical chain stay as compared to the 2006 model. However, I'm particularly interested if anyone knows if there is a noticeable or significant ride improvement or difference with the 2008 model.

    Both are a small frame size and about the same price; however, the 2006 is in better shape.

    As a point of reference, I used to ride a '96 Specialized AIM, one of the early full suspension bikes. I'm looking forward to upgrading to a Truth.

    Thanks in advance,

    -Derek

    qbert2000 - thanks for the replies and help in evaluating the two models. It turns out the 2006 model was an older model so I decided against it.
