    I beleive it is a 2012. It looks fairly new. It is a large frame and i am 5'6 but i figured if it is a good bike i could deal. Seems to be in hood condition. It is a grey color.

    A large frame would be considered too big for you at 5'6" tall.

    If you plan on bike packing, get yourself a gravel bike with mounts. Salsa makes great bike packing bikes with plenty of mounts to carry your stuff.

    A free bike that is too large for you is still not a good deal. Look for a "small" or 15-16" frame, maybe a medium, or you will regret it.

    That's like buying size 13 sneakers when your foot needs a size 9. Sure, you can ride a bike that's too big for you just like you can slip your feet in some oversized shoes. It's going to suck to move around in either case, though.

    What town do you live in? These guys can help you find the right bike, but they need to know where to look.

    christ, you need to settle down.

    You need to figure out the right size for you, PERIOD. Stop looking at random cheap used bikes and figure out what size you need. Get some in-person help.

    After you decide what size works best, THEN you can start narrowing your search.

    Honestly, right now, you look like you're just throwing shit at the wall to see what sticks. The problem with that strategy is that it's going to wind up costing you a bunch more money and hassle than if you'd just gone to a shop and bought an entry level bike that actually fit.
