Yes, it will hold up fine. You will need to do the work on it yourself, or you will be better off reselling it and buying a better bike. Not suitable for upgrades, as it has a heavy, lower end frame, with a fair amount of paint damage.

Before buying anything, I would spend some time getting knowledgeable. Get knowledge, get lucky, or get taken.
