No THEY don't make bikes for wheelies, but people build and setup bikes specifically for wheelies to make the wheelies easier to do and more comfortable to ride on.

They use stock equipment, but put on specific equipment to make wheelies easier and more comfortable. A nice big comfortable seat that is leaned way forward. It sucks to sit on when you ride normally, but in a wheelie, it's at the perfect angle.

Bars that are comfortable, seat at the right height, longer cranks, a better gear ratio... sometimes they use fixed gearing. There is a lot you can do with a bike to make it better to wheelie on.

But we ride freestyle, so we manual. Not wheelie.
