purchase help

I'm lost and looking for a new bike. I used to have some giant that I bought for around $300, but I broke that this summer. So now I need a new one, and college is killing me so I'm hoping to that I can pick something up for less than $650.

Basically I need something for that can handle mild trails(I just do some small triathlons around the state) and i can ride around town.
I have no clue about this bike size thing, Iím six two, two hundred pounds.

any recommendation or info you can through my way would be great.

thanks

Specialized Hardrock sounds nice.... Or maybe the Rockhopper?

Kona Cindercone is nice too, not sure if its in your price range though

Heck, a hardrock pro is only about $675 and that's a pretty good bike. The Rockhopper has a bit nicer frame, but you'll have to go down a model or two in order to stay under $650. The Rockhopper Comp Disc comes in under $500 and is one model below the Pro Disc.
