I have a Santa Cruz Bronson which I got last October. Due to the really bad riding conditions late and early this year I decided to have it serviced recently. I did list down my settings so when I got the fork and shock back I immediately set them to what it was pre-service. But strangely, the rebound on both ends felt slow as compared to before. My shock was set to 9 clicks before but now to get it to how it felt before I only had to run 5 clicks. As for my fork, it was previously set at 8 clicks and how I am only running 5 clicks. The only reason I could think of is that the service center used a higher weight oil to what was originally in there. The technician told me he used the same weight which is 7.5 for the fork and 10 for the shock.

First, I was trying to find what weight oil the '14 Talas 34 and Float CTD used but had no luck finding any info. Any ideas? Second, is there a down side to running a higher viscosity oil? Third, is it possible that Santa Cruz is using a different weight oil than found forks and shocks bought separately?

TIA

Rebound is directly affected by spring pressure. Is your pressure set higher?

If they didn't replace with exactly the same stuff, you might require a few different clicks. As long as you are getting it where you need it, I wouldn't worry.

Go ahead and ask them what fluid they used though for your own edification.
