i dig this skill for nose wheelies around corners. however, modulating my beloved Zee brakes for this takes an especially sensitive index finger or i'll definitely be doing endos...

Since when are these called 'Endos'?  I always thought this skill was a 'Stoppie'.  In my experience an Endo, is when your back end actually goes End Over the bars and land in a pile on the ground wondering what the heck just happened.

Yep... I'm going to assume you're just north of, or right about 40 years old?  Its the kids (anyone 39 or under) these days ruining the names of everything.  I still call a wheelie/manual a "cat-walk".

Traditionally an endo is front brake / back end up. Used to pivot , hop on front wheel etc. Back whe in mid-nineties with Hans Rey in his prime and trials skills practised by every rider coz they had a one-bike-do-all-hardtail.

A stoppie is like a rolling endo. A front wheel wheelie if you like. 

These terms have been misused massively but it’s because very MTBers these days are into their trials riding or even bother practising this stuff.

I was expected to see a Flying W followed by a stoop thru vault or front flip

Let's not forget they have different terms for the same trick overseas. And yes I agree the current generation has bastardized lots of old slang.
