Small fib about hard stunt by cyclist (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

wheelie

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'stunt by cyclist' is the definition.
The definition suggests a singular noun which matches the answer.

'small fib about hard' is the wordplay.
'small' becomes 'wee' (Scottish term for small).
'fib' becomes 'lie' (I've seen this in another clue).
'about' is an insertion indicator.
'hard' becomes 'h' (abbreviation used in pencil classifications).
'wee'+'lie'='weelie'
'weelie' enclosing 'h' is 'WHEELIE'.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for wheelie that I've seen before include "dangerous move on bike?" , "Bike trick" , "Manoeuvre" , "A bicycle trick and a bin" , "Type of bin" .)
