Bottom of the line, no-name parts. Designed to be ridden around the block then put in the back of the garage, to be sold years later at a garage sale.

Shop at a bike shop. In fact, shop at several and then make a purchasing decision based on what shop you like best.

That bike is too small for a normally-proportioned 6-foot-tall male. You would fit a 58 to 60cm frame better- but there's more to bike fit than just frame size. That's why a good bike shop is important. They'll work to put you on the right bike, then work to fit the bike to you.
