Need Quick Help Before Tomorrow!!! Is this bike worth the price?

I'm trying to buy a good bike for my husband but I don't know if this is good quality for this price? Can you give me your opinions please? He's just gonna be using the bike for trail riding and mountain biking.



Im selling an IronHorse hardtail mountain bike L. $ 400 firm.
Large 19 1/2" frame,
Manitou SIX forks with 100mm travel,
Hayes mx2 6" disc brakes (levers and calipers) (x2),
shimano Deore crank,
new Shadow Conspiracy pedals,
Sram 5.0 derailer,
Shimano Deore XT Mega 9 rapid fire SL-M750 shifters [24 speed],
ALEX rims 26",
Shimano Deore hubs,
kenda tires,
new super 8 handlebars,
new oury grips,
new Bontrager SSR seat,
also installed a new stem that i ordered prior to deciding to sell the bike.

I have only used the bike for xc use, great bike that hasnt been used hard. I am selling the bike because it does not suit my kind of riding. Dark-grey in color. just got a tune-up @ main cycle for the season. suitable for someone between 5'7 - 6'
The bike has a warrior frame. I chose to build this bike using that frame because its made of aluminum (light weight). Otherwise it was built from the ground up buying it piece by piece. The frame is 4 yrs old. All of the rest of the parts were bought within the last 2 1/2 yrs. the pedals. Handlebars. Seat. Grips. Stem. Post clamp. We're all bought and upgraded for this season. The bike has normal wear from being ridden as intended. A few small scratches from riding the trails but that's it. In great working order though. Rims are true and straight. Frame is in great condition. No cracks. Rides fast and smooth.

IMHO, you should always purchase new, whenever possible. Therefore, the following would be my recommendation:

The Dawes Haymaker 1200 ~ $380

Good Luck!

PS.

The bike will arrive 95% assembled already. You'll just have to make a few minor additions and adjustments.

(Watch the video as many times as needed for correct assembly)

It looks like the Warrior model comes in a variety of configurations, retailing new from $350 to $600 or so. The "upgrades" may or may not be worth it. Even the best components don't help if they're installed by a ham-handed mechanic.

The important question is - would this bike actually fit your husband?
