    How to stop squeaky seat?

    My seat's been making a lot of creaking noises lately.

    It's not coming from the post/frame. It's coming from the seat/post.

    I have a Soma Okami saddle if that helps.

    Should I just lube where the rails meet the post?

    A few drops of any light oil (or even chain lube) will remedy this.

    i find that on my thomson seatposts it would squeak where i lost the washer for the bolt, so the bolts are just naked without washers.
    replace washer = no squeak = win?

    Just stand the entire time, I hear this is super easy if you're riding fixed.
