So here's my quandary I can get a good deal on Yeti 66-sb frame (or another 26 inch boutique frame), I've got a a lot of spare parts, so I could build a nice bike for a wee bit less than a the basic Kona 153.

So should I be saving up for the Kona 153 (650b) or build the Yeti 66-sb in a 26 inch (with that sweet carbon rear triangle, and the perhaps better(?) suspension)? Is the 650b Kona that much better?
