Newbie Bike Question

I've been searching and searching, i just wanna know if this bike is worth anything. My friend's uncle died and left it to him, he didn't want it so he gave it to me. Its apparently a "Mountaineer" by "Outfitters" I can't find the manufacturer anywhere let alone any bikes by them. It has shimano grip shifters, seems to be aluminum as its fairly light. Has front shocks though I don't know how to tell if they're any good, 26" wheels, 19" frame I believe. I don't know what the brakes are called but they seem to be in a V shape rather than the C clamp style. Any ideas??

Sounds like something ordered from China by a large chain store in which case its only worth riding till it or you break.
