I am new to biking. I have a new Motobecane 29 Pro. The gears seem to work properly but when I peddle backwards, the gears start changing on its own. It is as though the chain gets slightly stuck (only when peddling backwards). I just noticed it tonight as it never happened before. Any ideas what the issue may be?

Thanks

Could be a few things. Rear derailleur adjustment, particularly cable tension. Freehub binding a bit. Pedaling backwards in particular combos, and if so what cog/ring combos?
