lube 'er up! check to see if it's rubbing on something on the frame or it might be your chain or you might have blown a bering or something.

I have a new chain and it squeaks even when I'm not pedaling and it doesn't rub on anything if I pick the bike up and spin the wheel and no squeak it only happens when theres pressure on the wheel because when I manual it gets louder

AOL went on a mong out mission last night when I tried to reply at 2am

Flip the bike over, put the wheel on and see if it's squeeking when you turn the cranks by hand.

If it is, undo the rear axle bolts a very small amount, try again. Continue doing this - I assume the squeek disappears when the wheel isn't fitted, so it should stop at some point as you loosen. Are the wheels sliding around in the dropouts at this point? If not, you may just be over tightening the bolts.

Check where the driver meets with it's pawl & rachet mechanism for a rubber O-ring. Get some grease on a finger and wipe it over the seal.
