specialized rockhopper - 13 inche frame size

hey guys,
I saw a posting around my place for a specialized rockhopper for $50. The thing is that the frame size is 13 inches, I am about 5' 5" (I think my frame size would be 15 ")
Do you guys think it is worth it to buy the bike. I was thinking about moving the back seat as far back as possible and stuff to "make it" fit my size. my gf is about 5' 1" would it be a better size for her?

Should I get the bike even if it isnt within my size (and try to adjust it so that it wont kill me to ride the bike)?

Thanks guys.

Agreed, size should work for both of you. It would have to be in pretty bad shape for me not to buy a Rockhopper at that price.

Shoot, I'd buy it even if it was just to get the spare parts. If it fits it is just a big bonus!
