Giant FCR 3100?!

Hi everyone
Just sold my MTB
please help me decide
I want to buy a new bike, mostly riding it on the road (btw roads are in a bad condition here in Kurdistan/Iraq)
I wanted to buy a hybrid but I can't find a single one in the market, the only bike I found close to a hybrid is a flat bar road bike, which is the following with a price of 425$, so it is my only option:

specs (auto translated from chinese):

considering that there are many uphill and downhills and I became tired easily on my sold MTB (which is the main reason I sold it) , and that I want to ride the bike for losing weight (I weigh 230 lbs), would you recommend buying this one?
Any comment about anything regarding this bike or its suitability for me is appreciated
thanks

I'm sorry, I wish I knew more to help . Maybe ask same thing with a different title? Something like "good bike for a 230 lbs person?" I don't know...

Thanks
The problem is that I live in Kurdistan/Iraq and people here (except kids) are not interested in biking at all, last two years I was the only one using a bike daily to go to university, so there are very few options to choose from, once in a time a good bike is to be found in the market, so this is the only bike of this kind available now, that is why I am asking specially about this one.
Thanks again.

I'd also point you to the Clyde/Athenas forum.
