GP Bikes supports 4 types of front suspension geometry.

1) "Telescopic". Used on almost all racing bikes.

2) "Push Arm". The front wheel is attached to an arm, with the pivot behind.
Example: speedway bike.

3) "Trail Arm". Same as push arm, but the pivot is in front of the wheel.
Example: Vespa.

4) "Rigid". There is no suspension and the front wheel is connected directly to the steer.
Probably only used on minibikes.

Hitting the apex is just a figure of speech, Don't literally hit it...
