creaky seat fixes

I've replaced my seat on my bike with a charge spoon and over the last few weeks its started to click/creak.

Its definitely the seat and not bottom brackets bearings or anything else.

The seat clamp isn't over tightened and the bolt securing the seat to the seat post isn't over tight either.

I was even thinking of replacing the seat post as my bike has a cheap bontrager seat post with a better one would this solve the problem?

Any ideas how to fix this?

    You could try a drop of lube into the bit where the rails join the structure of the saddle.
  • Take seat off bike, turn it upside down and spray lube into where rails join saddle structure as suggested above.

    Leave seat upside down and then add another shot of lube a few hours later

    You should then be able to fit back on bike after having left for another few hours soak time

    I had exact same issue and the above has resulted in quiet seat for couple of months
