Klein Pulse MTB - Thoughts?

Thoughts on this Klein Pulse? Am not a rough trail rider, but do like to ride off road now & again. Seller has dropped the price $25 since the original post. Not sure of the size, but was told "medium." Am tentatively taking a look at the bike this evening.

What what looks like a Sugino Imperial (although a more modern version than mine) I am not sure I see 1100 MSRP, but the Klien name carries that. If your looking for a good rider and it fits go for it the price seems reasonable, especially if it has new tires and all that other stuff.

Thank you all! It does look small, but will evaluate it in-person tonight. If so, might be good for my youngest kid.
