Hold it up to the screen so we can hear it.

Only YOU can locate a noise. Is it the front wheel, steerer tube, only when braking? Something loosely mounted and ready to fall off? Narrow it down. Take it to a bicycle shop and have them look and listen.

If you have quick release hardware holding your wheels on it would behoove you to use them properly.

Rattling noise


I know this may sound lame but I had a similar rattle and it was the catch on the fuel lid.
I put a little rubber on the tounge of the lock and now it is quiet.
