Bear in mind that in the era that the TLR and its twin-shock predecessors were designed, a trial wasn't an anti-gravity zone in a quarry where people balanced at a standstill for hours at a time...it was sections of mostly natural terrain, linked by country roads and green lanes.
More to trials riding than doing pogo demos at NEC type arenas, came across one the other week 90+ miles using roads and open country between sections,which were tough. I've seen trials riders use enduros as warm ups for the more serious events like the Scottish six days where they do 100+ each day and can do 30 miles over moorland between sections,on a bike with no seat!!!!
