This frameset and stem were custom-built by Nic Schmidt of Capital Bicycles (Seattle) in 2005. It is as much a pleasure to view as it is to ride. The components include a Campagnolo Chorus group, Chris King headset, Regal saddle, and DT Swiss rims.

This bike is such a gem, I'm having Nic build me a country roadster with clearance for bigger tires and fenders to help me navigate the endless paved, dirt, and gravel roads as well as, yes, the snowmobile trails of beautiful Northern Wisconsin. I look forward to its arrival this spring and will post pictures then.
