Saddle clicking sound

I've been using a Selle Italia SLR saddle for about two months now...and this mind numbing clicking sound has developed from what seems to be the center of the saddle, it's completely gone when I'm not sitting down **hmm new way of riding.

I was wondering if anyone encountered the same problems with their saddles and have some remedies for it, thanks very much.

I've encountered similar problems- in my case it was the rail/seatpost interface. I just slightly torqued the saddle clamp bolt(s) a little at a time until it went away. Hope this helps..

Thanks very much, I'll give it a try when there is less snow on the ground.
