That is normal with derailluer bikes if you are cross chained, meaning in a gear that causes the chain to flex from inboard to outboard.
You can lift the rear wheel while rolling backwards, such as getting the bike out of tight storage where you can't roll forwards or turn around..
Bikes: Old steel race bikes, old Cannondale race bikes, less old Cannondale race bike, crappy old mtn bike.
