Well, after riding my faithful Torker CX 24" into the ground for almost 4 months now, the old girl’s starting to creak a bit. Whenever I get on, shift my weight any considerable amount on the saddle, grab the seat in preperation for hopping, or actually hop (both static and rolling), she replies with a high pitched squeal of distaste. I’ve checked the wheelset and profiles - the hubs seem in good condition, the wheel is trued, pedals are fine, cranks are still straight. I can only assume now that it’s my saddle/seatpost…would I be right in assuming this?
And if I am, what would be a good option? Just stop my dropping and hopping on the CX, or spend the 40 or 50 bucks on a new saddle/seatpost until I can get my '06 Torker DX 24" that I’m saving up for?
