    WTB Volt Saddle Alternitive

    Love my Volt.. I've had a couple. First one started creaking so bad I had to get rid of it and I bought the Ti version. It was silent for some time and I thought I was in the clear but now creaks so bad I cant stand it any longer. Love the saddle. hate the noise. Anyone have a suggestion for a similar saddle that is maybe better manufactured? Not a fan of the Silverado.

    Did you clean and grease the rails? I thought mine was creaking but it was just the rails.

    Put a couple tiny drops of oil where he rails attach to the body of the seat, also.
    Almost = Didn't

    Depending on how many miles youíve put on the saddle, it may just have reached its end. Try cleaning and greasing the rails, as suggested, but also clean and grease the bolt threads on the clamp and seat post clamp. Also, if you havenít already, grease the post lightly or, if itís a carbon fiber frame, use carbon paste on the post. Check that the bolts are properly torqued. A little lube where the rails enter the seat body, as suggested, works, if thatís the problem, but itís temporary. Alternative saddles are tough to recommend because saddle choice is super personal. That said, few saddles have the short length of the Volt. I went from a Volt to Ergon SME and like it but they changed their line. Specialized Phenom is another if they still make it. Both, though, are flatter than Volt.
