I always thought that was caused by warped brake discs.

Loosen all the rear wheel nuts and retorque them carefully in two stages. 90 then 180nm in the correct order.

T25s are really fussy when tightening the rear wheel nuts (At least mine is)

works for me

I had this problem. It was caused by uneven wear on the rear wheel hubs causing the rear brakes to pulsate. Replaced those and the problem went away.

When I had the same issue it turned out to be a damaged rear tyre .

Mine was a warped rear drum caused by a rear cylinder seizing. New drum sorted it. (+ cylinder)
