Should I take the deal?

I need a decent bike for the summer to commute to and fro from college and maybe try a hand at mountain biking. I have the following offer for a GT bike (dual suspension) for $100:

...GT mountain bike with triple GT triangle frame, thumb shifters and pad brakes. Bike is about 5 years old. It has 26" tires and I think the frame is size 16. It has been well maintained: shifts smoothly, rides really nice, has great pick-up, tires are in great shape, light weight and very reliable...

Is it worth it? I don't want to spend a lot for a bike I might just use for 3 months and $100 seems just about right.

Your reply would be greatly appreciated.

If it's got a "triple GT triangle frame," it's not dual suspension.

$100 for a used GT in good condition? Sure.
