Its baicly Giant's entry level Cypress. The componets were the same that was on my Nomad. A step up from a Mart Store, but not the best either.
Its if fits, get it. Allot of folks like their Cypress. I've rode them and think they are a great hybrid.
At 6'10", its going to be tuff fitting you though!
Plan on getting allot of, "if you just put more money with it then you can get.." And more money will get you more bike. But its a first bike and I'm sure if you like it, you will upgrade later to a better/more expensive one. My Nomad was $250 on sale.
You can get allot better bike used with that $200. But you need to know what you are looking for and wait till what you find is for sale. A friend would help out also.
