    unlikely..

    If a seat stay is creaking the frame is broken or the bond with a lug has come loose. More likley it's something more simple, like the saddle, or something in the pedal/cleat or bottom bracket area. Could even be a creaky rear wheel. I've had a couple of saddles that creaked and needed an occasional shot of spray lube where the rails are inserted into the shell. Of course that creak goes away immediately if you get out of the saddle.

    Failure to adequately tighten a rear skewer can also cause a creak, but if should be as bad or worse out of the saddle.
