When I clicked on the link, I was expecting more, too... but it looks like a very low end mountain bike to me. Cottered crank, much later than the ones we are used to seeing in the USA. The one thing I would (besides the wheel size) do is check the seatpost diameter and try to get some handle on what it is made of, but those dropouts don't give me much hope.
