Speeding Down Lifes Hiway

How goes the war? My name is Travis. I am the proud father of 3 under the age of 3. Yeah, you guessed it! A HAND FULL. But we have fun. Yes I am starting them off right and got them bikes for their their Birthdays this year.
I used to ride the dickens out of a bike then well I moved to AZ and decided it was too hot to ride...that and graveyard work and full time school made it hard to fit in riding time. I know, I know. Poor excuse. Anyways, I am still in AZ and have finally pulled up the bootstraps and started riding again. To say the least I am way behind in all the new gear and trinkets out there. I did purchase what I hope to be a good ride. It is a caad4 canondale R800 with dura-ace flight deck shifters, and derailers. It has cannondale brakes and cranks. Someone said that they were better than Dura-ace. Any thoughts on the topic? I want to ride in this years tour de tucson. I know I have gotten a late start in the training. It took me a few weeks after finally finding a bike to get the rest of my equipment needs together. I did post a question about the flightdeck computer if someone can help out I would be most grateful. Do carbon bars, stems, and seatpost really help with road vibration. I have a carbon fork but everything else is aluminum canondale original.
Well thats enough from this country rebel. Feel free to drop a line on any helps or suggestions. Thanks!!

Welcome to bike forums. As for your questions you would probably have more luck with them in the road bike section.

Enjoy your stay, and welcome back to the sport.
