This may be way off base but since I don't have any idea what the brakes look like on your bike or how they are installed, is it possible that they are installed backwords. Brakes are supposed to be self loading, that is the forward motion causes to shoe to press harder as the wheel rotates. That's why drum brakes don't work as well in reverse. Just a wild shot in the dark.
