It all depends on what fork steerer to crown dimension those angles were set for whether it's suspension specific or not.

a downtube length would give you a way to create a triangle to work it out

Stick wheel in back, raise bottom bracket to correct height.... you then have the height of the front wheel correct.
Make a line down the front* of the head tube to this point.

then measure from bottom middle of the head tube to this point will give you approx length.


* this adds a small amount a rake to the fork making it a little more accurate.

.. or stick forks you have in, till it measures up...

.. or just post the frame make model and year or picture and chance are someone might know :o
