Because a "spike" is a raising of the value falling immediately after,
but do not convey the image of "bubble".

A spike (up or down) can happen and it is not indicative of the long
term trend.
A bubble convey the idea of something popping once and forever.

For now bitcoin had many spikes and not a bubble, because long term
trend was and is up.
