    Saddle develops play?

    I just sent a 6 month old WTB saddle in for a warranty fix. The problem was that the right rail had come loose at the rear connection point. It wasn't loose enough that I could actually pull the rail out, but there was a mm or two of play.

    I put this in the singlespeed forum because I think the only reason that I noticed it was because of all the standing/sitting that goes along with singlespeed. Riding along was fine, but the saddle would shift a bit every time that I sat down and it was pretty disconcerting.

    The internet seems to have almost no information on this, so I'm wondering if I'm being too picky?

    Keep riding it till it breaks. Unless it annoys you too much.

    I have had that happen on a few saddles. One of them squeaked like crazy, but aside from that, they were fine.

    Is this one of those fixed gear saddles? Or just a standard single speed?
