From what I can see by Googling its specs, it was a slightly below midrange model. Could be an okay bike as long as you don't get too rough.
I have had terrible experiences with the 2006 SX-5 shifters though, so if that Alite still has those you might want to set some money aside to upgrade them when they go wrong.

Whereas I'm a fan on the SX-5 shifters, although the action may be a bit heavy for some tastes.
