Endo.

That's what they have been called in BMX/Trick/Flatland riding for as long as I can remember. You can't make me change now.

The difference between the two terms used to be that the stoppie was rolling while the endo had the bike pivoting around a stationary front wheel. This was years ago mind and times change.

That was always the way I remember it but like you say, times change. :)

Mind you, when you're doing them from 70+ (:sly:) mph I call them something else. Something I probably shouldn't post here. :)
 
I knew the word endo when I was young from a lucas arts pc game called full throttle but now have learnt to say stoppie because it doesn't sound as silly in my head and I think more people would understand it.
 
I had Full throttle too, it was amazing. I call then stoppies though. Endo's are indeed when the front wheel is stationary and the back wheel pops up.

According to Wikipedia

Endo:Endo, a cycling trick, otherwise known as a stoppie

Stoppie:The trick is performed by harshly engaging the front brake and leaning forward.

THere is loads more so ill just post the stoppie link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stoppie
 
I remember some guy telling me they are called nollies once, I said mate we're not talking about skateboarding here they are obviously called stoppies. He was having non of it and was adiment(sp?) they are nollies lol.

A nollie in skateboarding is when you jump with your front foot going up first(whereas ollie is your backfoot) and has nothing to do with bikes as far as I know.
 
It's a stoppie as far as I'm concerned. That's what they're called in GTA Vice City & San Andreas - both of these games record in your stats the time & length of your longest stoppie. But as this is a GT/TT forum, not a GTA forum, I'll stop now (escuse the pun!).
