Retro Newbie

Hey all, new here. Just sold a "new age" Surly Krampus 29er and want to get into something better suited for XC, light MTB, trail, gravel with the kids.

This lava dome is up for sale again, and I'm in the US so it would be slightly less to ship it for me. Shipped to my door for $715 USD. This still seems really expensive and the seller doesn't have any details on components (or close up photos).

Also, any advice on fit? I'm roughly 5'11 and this bike says it is an 18-inch frame. Wondering if I'm too long for this.

As an alternative, I have the opportunity to pick up this Cannondale F1000 CAD3 (assumed to be 1998?) for $325 USD, frame is an XL, which I know would fit me better: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/it ... =undefined

Any advice?
