It is coming from somewhere in the front of my bike. I can't seem to figure out exactly where, though. It is almost like a loud rattle, but it goes away when im riding. Is it the headset? Do I have to tighten my front wheel?

It could be your headset, it could be your front hub.. It could be anything. Shake your front wheel side to side to see if theres any wobble. Do the same with your headset. The reason you don't hear anything while you're riding is because you're putting weight on the bike. Do you feel it when doing certain tricks?

Test your stuff out. Tighten things up, apply some lube. Ride it, drop it again see if you're still hearing it.

Take it apart and put it together, probably your chain though and my pedals rattled before they broke

Its the cones in your front hub, get a 17mm spanner and tighten them up smile happens to me all the time because i have unsealed bearings

Just take your whole front end apart, clean everything, regrease whatever needs to be, and put everything the way it should be.

Could be really anything, just take it a part and rebuild it, this usually solves it, get everything nice and snug.
Check for cracks too you never know.

cone nuts most likely. flip your bike upside down so the front wheel is facing up and then hit it from the side. if it makes noise, then it needs tightened

They're called rollers.


OP, does anything on your bike feel wrong? Does it even make the noise when you hop?
