If this is your first century and the most you've done before is a metric, then I would highly advise against doing it on a bike you've never even rode. If you do some research, there is not a website, book, or magazine that would tell you to ride a new bike on your first century. I would guess that you would need at least two weeks on that bike with a long ride to see if you've worked out the bugs.
With that said, if you still decide to do the century, just have a great time, eat well, and ride safe.
