I'm getting a derailleur like rattle when I put some pressure during peddling on the single speed fixed gear bike. If I stop putting pressure and just let the cranks rotate it goes away.

I was thinking it could be saddle rail/seat post, so I stand off the saddle it seems to reduce in volume (whilst peddling) but it's still there.

I don't think it's the chain being too tight, I've already put out as much tension as I think is safe (it has tight and loose spots)

I have put copper grease on chainring bolts
Say... That's a nice bike..
