Without a doubt I'd say you should go with a Slingshot FarmBoy 29er and for 2011 I think you can also get it in green in addition to the standard glossy black. I'm not positive of its range but if you have at least a 70oz hydration pack you should be able to hit 200 without much trouble. The downtube is made of steel cable so you'd have to mount a bottle cage to your stem but if you jump up to a 100 oz hydration pack I think you could extend the range up over 250 without having to do so.

Awesome...unintelligible response to an unintelligible question.

Anyways, look at used bikes.

The answer did seem to fit the question. :)

I'm most confused by the 100-200 pound "range" unless Tommy is wanting to carry stuff around. If cargo is a concern a Surly Big Dummy would fit the bill pretty much, I think it can carry 200 or so pounds on the rear rack.

I'm assuming he's in the UK and that's his budget.
*smacks self on forehead*, when I saw "Birmingham" in the poll the OP created I was thinking Alabama instead of the other Birmingham... The OP kind of makes sense now, and agree that a used bike would be the best route to go. I still think a Slingshot bike would be cool just due to the steel cable as a downtube but I would guess it's about 5-7x the budget.
