Reasonable bike for a noob but I wouldn't go too far past $100 for it.

He's pretty vague on the specs but i would say $125 total with shipping would be a good deal. It will probably bring more than that though if experience serves me correctly.

The highest you should go it $100-$125 shipped Considering its a non-suspended bike. Great for a starter bike. If she really gets into the sport. I'd suggest investing on a front suspension bike from a local bike shop.
