  1. j. north says:

    This word also refers to a trick performed on a bicycle or motorcycle in which the rider balances on the front wheel, with the rear wheel in the air.

  2. You’re right. I’m working on the second sense for this word; I think the first cite above is unclear, and probably belongs to your definition of an endo, and not to the one I have here.
