A TRICK HINT
ALL CURRENT HINTS
The endo is the basis of many of the tricks that are possible in freestyle. An Endo
is when the back wheel of the bike is lifted off of the ground and the bike goes up onto
its front wheel only.
There are several different ways to do endos-
- FRONT BRAKES: While travelling at a fairly slow pace grab your front brakes hard.
Let your body lift upwards and towards the front of the bike. Put most of
your weight on your hands on the handlebars and, without removing your feet from the
pedals, unweight your feet. If you can't get the feel of this or your brakes don't
grab hard enough try one of the other two methods to get the feel of it. The
standard brake endo is the one that you will eventually want to have completely dialed in.

- CURB: You want to be going slowly for this one. Find a medium sized curb and
run into it with the front wheel. Do NOT throw all of your weight into the bike when
it hits the curb. When the bike hits the curb transfer your body weight from the
pedals to your hands on the bars and let your body weight shift forward over the
handlebars. Unweight your feet on the pedals without removing them from the pedals.
- FOOT IN THE FORKS: This is possibly the easiest way to learn to get the bike to go
up on the front wheel... It is so easy you should be VERY careful that you aren't going so
fast that you flip over the handlebars! While travelling slowly, JAM either foot
into the space between your forks and the top of the front tire. You may hurt your
foot if your shoes aren't tough enough. As soon as your foot is jammed in the space
put all your weight on that foot and your hands on the handlebars. Unweight the foot
that is on the pedal without removing that foot from the pedal. If you have front
brakes you should grab them at the same time as you jam your foot into the tire. (see
