Trek XO2 2008 - Good buy?

Hi everyone,

I'm looking to get into the world of biking. Rather than spend full retail price within my budget for a new bike I was hoping to purchase a higher quality used bike for the same price. I've been scouring craigslist for awhile and have come across a 2008 Trek XO2 56cm cyclocross bicycle for $500 (could get for $450 or less) The bike has carbon fiber stem, seat post, fork - Bontrager race lite wheels, saddle and Ultegra components. I have attached below some pictures of the bike. I am 5'11" and think the bike would be a good fit.

As I said I am newbie to the world of biking, but i'm looking for something to do some minor commuting and ride local bike paths. What are some things to look at when I view the bike and would it help to get any more info/pictures of certain components?

Thanks for your help everyone!
