I would take this to the forums and ask! I'm constantly amazed by how much these random people know and how much they can figure out from minute details. Judging by the Ritchey dropouts, this definitely isn't some cheap-o frameset. The fact that it has a serial stamped into the BB would indicate that this is no homebrew, either, but a production bike of some kind. The TIG welds are kinda chunky, though, so I'm not sure. Maybe a Rodriguez or other higher-volume US-based manufacturer?

Definitely a really pretty and simple road bike, regardless! Looks like a fun ride!

Agreed. That's about as much as I know too. The MT##xxxxxx (##= year) closely resembles early 2000s Jamises, but can't find any pictures to prove it. Thanks for the tips.

That's what I thought too. This was sold to me as a Ritchey, but the SN doesn't match their format. Bridgestone was also using Ritchey dropouts at the time, but this doesn't match either. I'm open to any ideas.
