The frame is made by Liyang - the LY serial no. denotes this, I have a late 80's Claude Butler aluminium with s/n starting LY on the left outside dropout. But yours looks a bit more modern and suspect a different make?

I'd guess an early 2000s aluminium frame made by one company and sold by another with whatever stickers they desired. With an all deore spec though it should ride nicely.

it looks like one of the generic alloy frames shops knock out with their own branding on.

The 'modern' Deore M510 groupset appeared in late 1999 for the 2000 model year and remained more or less unchanged until it was succeeded by the M530 groupset in 2006.
That puts a rough date on the frame unless it's an older frame that's had a complete Deore groupset put onto it.
More likely most of the components are contemporary to the frame though and the disc mounts point to a post 2000 frame too.

The frame does look pretty mass produced and generic. The rear dropouts look very familiar, I've seen them on Claud Butlers, Carreras and Dawes bikes amongst others.
