This is not a MTB frame. I think it's a BMX frame. Can't ID the exact frame or manufacturer. Ask in the BMX section. Components are pretty good though (hydraulic front fork, dual disk brakes).

^^ Not a BMX; it's a dirt jumper. Just not sure which one.

BMXs don't have any of those components. Or any front brakes for that matter.

You could say that dirt jumpers are a subset of BMX.

Front fork and the wheels look like they are in a much better shape than the rest of the bike. You can see the attachment point for the rear caliper brake on the seatstay. It could be an old street BMX frame with a bunch of aftermarket dirt/MTB components. There may still be a manufacturer logo somewhere under all that "artwork". There couldn't have been many bikes with square cross section top tubes, but I couldn't find it in google.

Maybe try posting this on pinkbike. I'm pretty sure I've seen bikes like that there.
