Roadie here with a quick frame sizing question

Hi All...I am selling my wife's mountain bike on craigslist. Its a 2001 GT Aggressor 1.0 without any size indication. Center of BB to top of top tube is 15 inches. My wife is 5'4'' and she had plenty of seat tube above and below her saddle heightand I am getting queries from two girls who are 5'2'' wondering if the frame would be a good fit.

Being a roadie I don't know the answers since frame geometry is so different between road and MTB. Would the goemetry for this bike be too tall or too stretched out for that height? What height range should I say in the ad?

Thanks...

I would just put the dimensions in the ad (seat tube and top tube, etc.), and let potential buyers come look at the bike.

I did but several people inquiring are novices to biking and don't know what frame size they need, so I don't want to waste their time and mince coming to see a bike that doesn't fit...
