I had a $100 mountain bike for a year or so. Issues I had with it were brakes gradually getting worse and worse, shifting not real reliable, and wheels not up to ANY kind of off-road riding. None of those would have prevented it from being used on a 100k had I elected to do so.
I did use my Worksman cruiser on a number of 100k and longer rides.
Just riding the bike on various shorter distances are what will give you the confidence to try longer distances. If you never ride it at all, and then go do a 100k, you may be wondering how it'll work. If you get out and ride 10 or 20 miles a day, you'll know what to expect.
