Here is a 29" MTB single speed from Mr. Eric Bahr himself.
It is frame #104.

Spectrum f'ing rules!

Here's a link to another Ground Up single speed frame, better pics-- http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=72099 The bike with the Zipp wheel in the photo above is the camoflauge painted track bike (also Ground Up) that xcutterx posted on page 65 of the "Your Fixie/SS Photos" thread a week or so ago.

I'd like to recommend you find a later race Ritchey unicrown fork -they don't have a lower bend and transfer shock in a more stable way.
Stronger too.
The frame has a more modern incline, but a earlier fork design (Ritchey 80's).

Salvagetti, nice looking frame, rims too. Keep the rad color collision.
Frames cool enough for the notice.

Listen to you, Mr. Stripey! They match the owners favorite socks, much the same way that the more, not less stripes on the top tubes of your Thylacycles match the patterned coat of a certain now-extinct critter.

It's an old Bridgestone MB-2. I believe the fork is indeed a Ritchey, Grant Peterson at his unsuspended finest.

I'll tell you this: when you hit a rock with that bad boy the whole front end starts humming like a tuning fork. But seriously I don't know how much money I'll sink into it as someday I'd like to get a little newer/steeper frame and then a 1" threaded fork isn't going to probably be a lot of use.

Do not know of G.P. You seem to have a start 90's frame, late 80's fork with the pannier mounts?
Wrong fork.
The pic I posted...$150 new, old one in a lbs? = maybe 50$.
Solid mtb fork?....they wont know it from a hole in the ground.

The important thing is if the frame is Tange Ritchey Logic?
Is? Worth working. Not the same as old Tom welding it, but good tubing.

Grant was the main guy (including designer) behind Bridgestone's US bike offerings. After he got pushed out, he went on to start Rivendell. He was the original retrogrouch, hated suspension forks. I've seen an MB-1 / MB-2 brochure from the late 80s where he basically unloads on the rest of the industry for making angles too steep and straightening forks making the ride so unforgiven that you had to have a suspension fork.
