There are some bikes that are better than others. Liteville 301 for example, really understated bike. Or when I first saw the spec on Cannondale Trigger Team 27,5″, superbike but when I tried it a little inside a store it just felt wront (tried a cheaper version).
A bike that has been fun is my Trek Remedy 27,5″. Until I was in Kristiansand and tried 2015 model of Trek Remedy 9 29″, felt so much better 😦 Rolled fast over everything, climbed better than a goat and descended like you want an endurobike should do, so great in every way and a spec that is all trhough good.
Never ridden a better Full suspension bike, but used better tires 😉
So a 2015 bike is bike of the year 2014? Yes, it came this year 😉

No matter what you say it’s the bike:
