What's that noise?

I took the bike out today for a 15km ride around town. I really like it and I'm not missing the ability to shift up/down at all I must say. Didn't expect this single gear of 42/16 to work out that well tbh, but it's pretty much perfect for me. I won't be able to paddle downhill and speed up things, but on the flat and uphill it works like a charm with that gear-ratio.
The short wheelbase and the steep angled headtube makes this a very responsive bike and maybe too nervous for some people, but I absolutely love it.

I ordered some bigger BMX/MTB pedals that offer a bit more grip, as those are rather small and slippery. I don't want to install clips or cleats tho, so this seems the way to go.
I also orderd some threaded road-tires as those slicks won't be much fun in the rain.

The usual freaking clicking noise which makes no sense and comes from apparently nowhere and goes away for whatever reason only to come back later. With my last bike I once got it sorted by changing the seat clamp.

It might also just be inside my head... I suppose that would be the most logical source, anyway.

As my bike is brandnew I ride it everyday for a lap around town to stress it a little bit and to see if everything is OK. make sure the spokes don't get loose or break, listen to the bottom-bracket if it's not making any clicking noises, etc.

Fortunately there's a few less parts on my singlespeed to look after and worry about

Take everything apart, clean every part, apply fresh grease to every part, reassemble with torque wrench, sacrifice virgin to the Machine God.

Take bike outside, get five pedal turns, #CLICK#.

Abandon all hope, go to bike shop to buy some more.

This'll always be like that, I've had four different bikes, with different drivetrains, geared, fixed, single speed, with different manufacturers too (Shimano, Sram), and the only thing that works, and then doesn't is dismantle/grease/rRebuildWithTorqueWrench, and go mad as the clicks comes back e-ve-ry-time!

It just makes no sense whatsoever. After some thrashing it's as quiet as a bike with a chain guide and a freakishly noisy freewheel can be, but suddenly out of nowhere CLICK CLICK CLICK ****ING CLICK

Are you sure it's not the bottom-bracket? My bike is brand new and my bottom-bracket makes clicky sounds when I'm pedalling downhill and can't pedal fast enough. Uphill, when I really step into it it's not making any noise at all tho ^^

I also had the chain off and tried to make the noise with only the bracket and the crankset, but to no avail.
