I ride a Trek Madone 5.9 full carbon bike (2004 model), which came with the blue San Marco Aspide saddle with Team United States Postal Service embroidered on it.
Recently, I have noted a creaking sound when I pedal (sitting), and my riding buddy and I believe we correctly isolated it to the saddle. Thinking the seat may have been cracked, I have replaced it with a SELLA ITALIA SLR KIT CARBONIO.
Today we went for a ride and definitely much less creaking (none for the first 20 kilometers), but then it started again, but only very infrequently.
I thought the problem may be where the rails join the seat's shell at the front and the back.
Is there any chance of damaging the saddle (SELLA ITALIA SLR KIT CARBONIO - carbon & vanox rails, carbon shell) by lubricating (with a synthetic oil - Protecta) the points where the rails join the shell?
If not, I'm gonna try it.
