    What genre is this frame? XC/AM/DH

    Hi MTBR, sorry for my language, I'm not from native English country..
    I bought a frame, someone told me that this is AM/DH frame, but I doubt it.

    its on shipping now so I couldn't check it and I don't understand how to properly calculate head tube angle or rear travel lenght.

    Judging from pictures below, what do you think? is it belong to AM/DH or just XC frame?
    and how do you know that this frame belong to certain genre?

    Thanks

    Front's pretty raked out. I don't know the brand, but it's looking FR/DH to me. What do I know, I don't even have a bike.

    Yeah. It looks like AM/FR but that shock is seriously suspect. Hope you didn't pay much for it. Ride it hard and if you like the way it feels replace the shock when it blows.
    Keep the Country country.

    yes, I plan to replace the rearshock, I only paid about $85 for this used frame.
    I only don't know what kind of fork (travel) that I should use, I guess it's safe to put this frame on xc trail/am genre.

    Thanks

    I suspect what makes the head tube angle like that, is the rear shock,
    currently it's 6.5 shock,
    how if I increase it to (for example) 7.5 eye to eye for the rear shock?
    will it affect the front angle to be more "neutral"?

    1. Frame with 6.5 rearshock has steep tube angle
    2. If I put more i2i rearshock, BB will get higher,
    3. Therefore if I use shorter fork travel, BB will nearly equal high like before, and tube angle will be more normal for an XC/trail bike

    What genre is this frame? XC/AM/DH-framebgt.png

    the reason why I'm think like this is I don't believe DH/FR bicycle only has 6.5 rearshock, so I guess its a xc/am frame with rearshock > 6.5 CMIIW..
