How is this for unusual

I have a Vitus Carbon 3 with full Mavic everything that I think I am going to just retire and hang as a piece of art work.

naa, I just bought a new bike and want to put this one away. I used to work for Mavic and it was given to me in 1989 as a gift.

A Specialized Roubaix Elite.

As I am getting older I found this bike to be extremely comfortable and has brought the fun factor back into riding.

Yes - I can understand your desire to retire your beautiful Vitus with the Mavic ware - Its respect.
