Remove and reinstall the front and back wheels and make sure the QRs are tight.

Start from somewhere. You have multiple bikes. Replace things that are removable and go from there.

Swap some wheels over if you think it's a spoke.

When does it rattle? When you're riding? If you shake the frame? If you hit a bump?

My next guess is cable housing rattling against frame.

Tap various parts with a screwdriver handle until you find it.

Thanks all found it, It was my Jagwire derailleur cables coming off drops tight against head tube but not binding makes them slap on rough surfaces.
