Squeaky Bike Saddle

For the past week or so my Felt S32 bike has developed some squeaking. At first I could not quite tell where it was coming from but when I stood up to ride up a hill I realized that it was coming from the saddle.

Since this noise is very very annoying I am trying to solve it but so far have been unable to . Yesterday I loosened all the bolts and then re tightened them. This morning I added some WD40 to the saddle and still when I went for my training ride today it was still making noise!

I am out of ideas, could there be something wrong with the saddle itself? Does anyone have any ideas? This noise is driving me crazy!

  1. Similar problem here. I will try some copper grease on the contact points on the saddle and seat post and maybe Vaseline on the saddle rails encase under load that the frame of the saddle is rubbing off the rails.
