Unless you are really knowledgable about your bike fit, this strikes me as a bad idea. Finding out that the fit isn't quite right in the middle of a tough century could make for a very painful day. A few weeks riding the bike in advance would help, but only if that included some very long rides. When I have minor issues with bike fit, I might not know it after 40 miles, but then suddenly at, say, 80 miles my (knee/hip/back/etc) might begin to hurt something awful.
