Need some opinions on a bike

All,
I'm a 6 foot 1 200lb dude with a face only a mother could love. I'm currently ridding a Kona Dew and have decided to upgrade. I'm looking into a Giant Seek 2 for around 650 bones. I've attached a link with specs and pictures. I'll be using this as my daily driver and sometimes on the heavier trails. I would appreciate an opinions from you good people.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

NOt bad.....

It has 36 spoke wheels, which should do ya. I'm not thrilled about the brand of the wheels (Alex), but at 200, you'll be fine with them, I think.

What is wrong with the Kona Dew. They look very similar in builds and I have heard very good things about the Kona bikes.

I have had problems with Alex wheels, but others have not had any problems at all.

Are you using an LBS? Try different bikes and different LBS' that would be my suggestion.
