I've seen several of the local rando guys do 200k's on mountain bikes, mainly because they were training for stuff like Dirty Kanza. The first 200k I did, and the first five centuries, were on a Worksman single-speed cruiser with wide cruiser tires.
All in all, if you're starting out, I'd advise to choose your bicycle to give you the best chance of success, rather than making it harder on yourself.
