I think that the definition of AM is kinda loose. Hence the confusion some people have with it. For me it means something like burly parts, riding down steep and jumping/dropping as much as riding up. Weight would be 30-40lbs. I think that hard tails are ok for AM, but would be more slack geo than a typical XC bike, with a lower seat height (or at least quick release adjustable for quick changes). Also narrow flat bars don't offer enough control and would be more XC.

That bike is way to PURRDY for me, it needs to be hammered on a epic 4-5 hour 50 mile rip complete with Drops, hucks and some Hell'a fast hard DH, then and only then is it All Mountain, that is if it's not broke in half. Otherwise looks fine. Happy Trails
