Newby - need advise

Well, I'm a newby in the forum. I joined b/c I am interested in getting in to cycling. I'm in my mid-50's and fairly active usually running and versa climbing. I'd like to get into trail biking probably with a mtn bike.

At this time, I am just looking for a used bike. I have been chkg craigslist and noticed a few name-brand bikes for under $100 - Trek Elite GS? Giant Acupulco? Raleigh? I don't want to put too much in to it right now in case I may not get to get too serious. Yeah, I know you probably can't get much for less than $100 considering serious bikers spend upwards of $1000 for their bikes. Below are the CL links to some available in my area.

Any input on these and in general would be appreciated.
