Brooks Flyer creeks and noises
My brooks flyer saddle has about 4,000 miles on it so far. But I started hearing creeks and noises coming from it after it "broke in" at 500 miles or so. It feels fine, but whenever I'm climbing a hill and shifting my weigh around on it, it seems to make sounds like metal under stress 'snapping' to release pressure. like a constant metallic snapping sound.
Does anyone know what this may be? it does have springs, so I'm thinking it has something to do with the spring tension.
It gets really annoying on long climbs.
