I did plenty of centuries on old 2x5 bikes. You may enjoy a newer, lighter bike with more gears, but it's not a necessity. The biggest help will be to get lots of saddle time. Buycycling Magazine (sic) puts out a guide every year for training for your first century. August is plenty of time; in fact, by August I'll have gone from no-miles-since-November to having done several centuries.
