Okay. My saddle has a squeaking problem. I've had it for probably 7 years, so it's not brand new. It has squeaked from the get go. I've had quite a tough time breaking it in, but I take really good care of it and it's in great condition.
I really believe that it is the leather, not an internal problem, as the sound seems to come from everywhere...surround sound if you will.
I have oiled and conditioned it plenty; I don't know what else I can do to remedy the problem!
FWIW, it is a Crosby Excel H... anyone else have had similar problems... how is it fixable?

When you baby powder it, flip it upside down onto something soft so you don't scratch it. Have it flat on its "back". Shake a bit of powder right in under the flaps, and shake the saddle gently to help it get into the nooks and crannies around the tree.
