    Help me choose a bike

    I just traded in my steel rigid frame bike and I am looking to get a hard tail bike. Right now I am looking at 2 bikes. Both are priced almost the same by my LBS. I ride mostly trails, singletracks, and some XC, fire roads. I am a bit limited to what bikes I can get because of my short 29.5" inseam. Help me choose.

    Kona Explosif 27.5
    KONAWORLD

    Canfield Yelli Screamy 29er
    Yelli Screamy - the 29er that handles like a 26" mountain bike frame

    I already have a full squish bike (Airborne Zeppelin Elite 26er) with upgraded rear shock and tires. So I am looking for a bike that will complement my 26er.

    **Update #2** The Yelli is still my #1 choice. My local bike shop's detailed frame build quote is being re-done. We are pricing out a "parts" bike build.

    We are looking to possibly getting an Airborne Goblin ($1,200), and swapping the parts to the Yelli. We would need to also purchase a few additional parts to make this work. It still looks a lot cheaper to do that buying all the parts separate. At the end I can also sell the frame to make a bit of money back.

    Any thoughts on doing a frame build this way?
