I have four B-67 Brooks saddles and the springs all squeek especially when climbing. I've squirted
them with WD-40 and later with silicone spray but neither helps. Any suggestions?

Try a better lube like oil or spray grease, and ensure spring nuts are tight.

Indeed, it does no good to have loose nuts, especially in the spring. It can lead to lost nuts and a
high-pitched voice inevitably follows as you see your nuts rolling down the road without you.

In my experience a good spraying with wd40 always stops the squeaking.

Light oil is a lubricant and WD40 contains light oil - which does not all evapourate rapidy. Thicker
and longer lasting lube is better, though.
