    Hello,

    I'm tracking down this weird noise and I'm not sure where it's coming from. I can feel lack of smoothness when pedaling backwards and then I hear this noise....



    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Steve

    Sounds like a bearing slowly giving up the ghost.

    Then again it may not be. That's just how it sounded when it happened to me a few years back.

    Other possible issue is a slight missalignment in the rear derailleur. Gears will work well when pedalling but back pedaling causes a lack of smoothness sometimes.

    Perhaps also the freewheel needs checking.

    You really need to take it to a shop.
