This can occur as the rubber compound deteriorates over time. I personally had this problem this year when I used some MTB tyres that had been unused for 3 years. Fortunately for me i took it for a ride (being very cautious with grip levels) and when I was done, the squeaking was gone and grip was restored.

After several suggestions and trials I think I have resolved the issue. I tried adjusting the cable tension away from the yellow linup mark. And by away I mean 0.5-1 turn of the adjuster. Also I decreased the belt tension to ~25-30hz which is a bit below the recommended 35-50hz range and so far so good! I can take the same slope without the loud bang, and ...

There are some Nexus and Alfine bikes that have made it out into the world with a spec mismatch between the over and under style cassette joints and the shifter. The cable pull sequence works in reverse order between the two shifter types. Because the cable pull for this system varies with each click, everything gets screwed up if you then use the setup ...
