A Brief History of Endo BMX

The term “endo BMX” was first used in the late 1980s to describe a specific type of stunt riding on BMX bicycles. It is a combination of two words: “endurance” and “BMX”. The term was especially popular with BMX riders in California and the Midwest in the United States.

Endo BMX stunts involve the rider lifting the front wheel off the ground while riding the bike. This is done by using the back wheel to push the bike forward and then quickly pulling up on the handlebars. The rider is then able to maintain balance and control while the front wheel is off the ground. This stunt is also known as a “wheelie”.

Endo BMX stunts are a popular way to show off riding skills and are often seen in BMX competitions. The term is still used today to refer to this type of stunt riding.
