What bikes have you ridden that have that certain something that makes them truly special? Lots of great bikes out there but only a few that make the special list for me.
Norco range - fun and ultra versatile. Climbs well and handles just about anything going back down.
Banshee spitfire - punches way above it's travel. Very poppy and playful bike that rips on the way down.
Knolly warden - maximum fun! Not the fastest bike up the hill but climbs well enough. Aggressive geometry that Rails corners and puts a huge smile on my face on the way down.
I am a horst link fan but I am sure there are some great vpp And dw link bikes.
