First mountain bike

Hello, post here. I'm in my mid-forties and I've be looking around for a first mountain bike to use for lite trail use and easy ridding.

I've came across this local add and looking for some opinions on this setup.
Bike does look clean and well taken care of.

Harvey Cycle FS Frame
Manitou Black 120mm Fork
Maintou Radium Rear Shock
SRAM X7/X9 2 x 9 Gear Configuration
BBG Bash Guard
Hayes HFX-9 Hydraulic Brakes
180mm Hayes Rotors F/R
KS i950 125mm Seat Dropper Post
Clean and well taken care of....
$700

Would appreciate any feed back you could give me.

Sounds nice guy. But if all your going to do is "lite trail use and easy ridding" then its 300% more bike and complexity than you need. Shop around for a good used hardtail. Specialised Trek Giant etc...Oh, and see D-minors thread on what advice he should ask for.

Yea, I know it's a bit overkill to start on I'm also looking for something I can grow into as I get better at ridding and more aggressive.
