Need help selecting a bike

Hi,
I am looking for an entry level hardtail to ride on both trails and distances on the road. When I visited my LBS I was told I should look at something like the Giant Rincon (size XL to XXL) because I am a bigger guy and need a little sturdier bike. Right now, I am 6'4 about 230. Just wondering what bikes are comparable to the Giant Rincon, maybe a little lower in price though (LBS price - $420). Is this bike a good bike or can I find a comparable one for a better price?

Thanks for the help!
