Default Marin Rift Zone FRS

I recently tripped upon the aforementioned bike today in need of minor
repair at a semi-local pawn shop for next to nothing & decided to buy
it, for a spare/guest bike or even the parts if nothing else. From
what I can tell it appears to be of the 98 or so vintage. It's a black
frame with an aluminum swingarm labeled "Torque Tube". The fork is an
Answer Manitou SX. The rear shock is a Fox Vanilla. The Cranks &
deraillers/derailleurs are Shimano Deore LX, and the hubs are Shimano
STX. The bike also has Avid V-brakes.

Can anyone help me verify the year? Anyone have experience with this
bike, or the forks & shocks? I'm curious about maintenance & repair,
as well as if the bike is worth riding to begin with. All feedback
welcomed & appreciated.

TIA,

Dan
