My saddle frame squeaks, Brooks Conquest...(6 posts)

My saddle frame squeaks, Brooks Conquest...UncleMoe
Sep 27, 2001 10:47 AM
I have a Brooks Sprung saddle on a touring bike. It is the Brooks Conquest and is comfortable as heck and takes out a ton of the little bumps.

However, the thing squeaks like mad when I'm peddling, which is most of the time (lol). Anyone know a trick to taking the squeak out of a saddle's frame?

In general I love the saddle, but the sound is just bugging me. I also have a B17 that emits no noises and I may have to return the Conquest for another B17 for this touring bike, and just have a bumpier ride.

The thing I don't know is if it the frame flexing that is causing the squeaking, in which case I don't see how greasing it would help.

or

Is the squeking from some of the joints where the frame connects to the springs and saddle, or even to the seatpost.

I guess I'm asking, has anyone else had this problem and where exactly do you grease it?

I've killed such squeaks by greasing the rails where they're clamped to the seatpost. That's where I'd start.
