sounds like you got some very loose spokes IMOA ! either that or some small pebbles in your downtube :oops: !

Doesn't sound like cables to me - as above sounds like loose spokes vibrating.

Maybe when the brake is locked on it holds the rim still so it stops? Who built your front wheel and how old is it - is the spoke tension in order? Or your QR tight is there any play in the hub maybe?

Just trying to think of things that might sound like that that would stop if the wheel rim was braced.
