    I would bet it's not tightened enough to the seatpost. Give it one more crank.

    Mine don't squeak, but i've read that if you cut a small piece of old inner tube and wedge it between the rails and leather where they meet near the back it stops the squeak.

    here's the thread I read it in:

    Put a few drops of any light oil on the rails, as well as the front bolt assembly. Both of my Brooks saddles squeak like crazy if I don't oil them from time to time.

    Do you think putting a drop of Phil Wood tenacious oil would be overdoing it? I've been having this problem as well and that's the only oil I got.

    My plastic Brooks squeaks and I'm proud of it.
