    Hmm...what is the difference between an "endo" and a "stoppie"?


    I wouldn't want to learn an endo, bit to pricey to replace everything. :rofl:

    endo = "end-over", as in "end-over-end". An endo is a stoppie gone wrong.

    What I was wondering was... How (and why) do you learn an endo?

    Why - it's fun and it looks cool...

    How...There are a number of ways, but to make it easy, get a gp on the front, drop the pressure to around 25psi and start going about 45 and brake progressively harder to a stop, watching the forks load, putting your weight forward and braking until the rear wheel comes off the ground. Bouncing your ass in the seat a bit and holding the rear brake will help get it off the ground too. When you are up in it, look where you want to go, NOT down...

    Stopping the rear wheel while in a decent stoppie will instantly swing the rear higher and stopping it has a tendency to get the bike sideways (the rotating wheel has a gyro effect) so be careful...

    I know what a stoppie is.
    I know what an endo is.
    A stoppie is not the same thing as an endo.
    An endo is a stoppie gone bad.

    I was wondering why he said he was practicing endos. That's like saying I'm gonna go out for a canyon run to practice my lowsides.

    Good luck on fixing it. Do as flynfrog said. It's super easy.
