Roader turned MTBer, looking for first MTB?

Looking for an entry level with front shock, a friend has the following ad locally on craigslist and said he would sell it to me for 250. Does this sound like a deal? If not, what should I look for?

I will be doing beginner trails with it riding solo, some drops and dirt jumps.


"2008 Trek 3900 Mountain Bike
Blue metallic / silver
Extras - 5 year extended warranty which includes 1 free tune-up each year
Climbing bars for doing hill climbs (silver)
2 aluminum trek water bottle holders
Brand new rear derailer (snapped off 1st one)
Bike works perfectly, ridden several times has some scratches, its an offroad bike, gets ridden hard.
This is the exact bike. Wouldn't let me just paste the pic. Has all the specs

Have $633 in this bike. Asking $300 O.B.O."

I dunno...I think you could buy a closeout NEW 2008 for that kind of money.
