It's an option. My buddy who stunts alot has this option. He bored out the parking brake lever, threw in a small lever from a mini bike, and routed the parking brake to line to the rear somehow. Adjusted it tighter than normal (no line slack) so now when he goes back too far wheelie-ing, he can just barely tap parking brake lever, n level back out. It's actually pretty cool n sometimes more convenient than using the foot brake.
