Hello... I'm getting back to mountain biking, but don't have $$$ for a new entry level bike. Planning to do recreational riding w/c will include single technical tracks, fireroads, and maybe Downieville next spring....
Is this bike ok, and is it worth $550.00. Please help me out...
I wouldn't pay $550 for that.

I'd stay away just 'cause of the fork. See if you can find a newer hardtail, such as [rummages through SF Craigslist] these:
http://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/bik/857681802.html - not bad, at least has disc tabs
http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/bik/864071962.html - better
http://sfbay.craigslist.org/scz/bik/863941895.html - okay
I'm truly staggered by the amazing number of overpriced bikes in the Bay area.
That looks like a nice bike, but there is a very good chance that fork is shot. I've owned two SIDs and neither has been particularly robust. If you're going to make an offer factor in the cost of a new fork.
