Right so I have a complete federal bmx. Federal forks, bars , cranks , frame , wheels the lot! I’m a federal fan boy ok I get it I’m sad.. whatever. But basically right my bike is rattling like fuck and I have no bloody idea what it is. I’ve literally stripped my entire bike. Back to brand new and re built it and it’s still doing the same noise. Like a rattling boing noise. It’s driving me crazy. I’ve spent about 5 hours now taking apart and re building and no joy.

Do you run brakes?
Pinned Pedals?
Bar ends tightened?
How loose is your chain?

Trying to think of all the rattles I've dealt with. I HATE rattles too.

Is it a loose spoke? Rattling and boingy? Sounds like a spoke.

Headset or cranks?

Post a video; otherwise we're just guessing.

Probably chain. They rattle a bit even if it doesn't touch anything.

Yeah I know, chains piss me off so much lol, that's why I like my KMC 410H chain with bushings or whatever in the rollers so it doesn't rattle at all really...
