Will build an AM bike around this 2 frames, with 140mm forks, on 650b wheels.
Which one would be a better choice?
Thanks in advance.

I have the 2015 Meta HT in 26, love it. Looks like the Primal has a slightly steeper HTA, slacker STA, and will have a higher BB with 650b. Meta HT BB is about as low as I would be comfortable going though...

Edit: My size L Meta frame weighed 2300 g, making it slightly heavier than the equivalent Primals claimed weight (2100 g).

Thanks cerebro.
very good points.
Im not much of a weight weenie, but the higher bb would be a welcome benefit.
Also, the primal is cheaper by about 70usd
