Giant STP1 2007, Right bike for me?

Hello everyone.
I was just looking at a posting on craigslist for a giant stp1, a 2007 model, asking 200$.
From the research I have done, this is bike which retailed for 900$ in 2007, and it is an eight speed, I believe. The frame is either 13.5 or 14.5 inches, he didn't specify.

I'm concerned with the size and number of gears.
I'm 6" tall, so would it be too small for me?
Also, I plan on using it for street use as well as trails, would be okay on the road?

Any other input on the bikes quality, is it a good deal?

I'm including a link to the bike page.
Thanks for the help.

Yes it will be fine on road.. but you aren't saying what kind of riding you plan to do.

If you want to do XC no.

Free ride yes.
