    chain noise and water

    I've been riding fixed for a few weeks, and I'm hearing some funking chain noises. At first, my chain would sort of hum when it passed through it's tightest spot, but I road it in the rain recently and now the hum has become a rattle or what sounds like really fast clicking, like the sound of the teeth hitting the rings. Is this a tension problem or a lube problem cause by water?
