Specialized Hardrock Disc 26

Really glad I found this sub-forum, there's a lot of useful information here.

I decided to start losing weight a couple of months ago and walking/jogging has so far proven very boring. So I've decided to get a bike.

The problem is; last time I rode a bike I was 30kgs (60lbs) lighter.

So I was basically wondering if this bike:

Can put up with the pounding my body will give it. I'm a touch shy of 6'4'' and I weight about 150kg (330lb).

Keep in mind I live in Australia, so my selection of bikes is much more limited than say, someone in America. Much more expensive too.

Thanks
