    Yes they make weird noised when pedalled backwards. When you shift back off on the power just a bit to aid the shift. If it won't shift and you hear click,click, click, click..... stop pedalling and it will shift, then carry on your way. As for maintenance, some of the nexus's aren't as well sealed as the Alfine so watch it with the hose. Other than that, keep the yellow marks lined up and ride the thing. They are fairly bomb proof.
