Re: Think something is stuck on when warmed.
I would try cleaning the rear caliper, may be some gunk on the pistons not letting them release. Best to pull the rear wheel, pop out the pads (note the orientation of the spring clip). Spray the piston area with a good quality brake cleaner. Then push the pistons back (you can use a partially inserted pad as a lever against the disc with the other pad fully inserted).
Then install the pads and apply the brakes to reseat the pistons/pads up to the rotor and see if there is still that drag. If so put a small hose on the brake bleed nipple and crack it to release pressure. If that allows free movement then you have a hose issue. There should be a slight drag on the rear disc but it should not stop it from free wheeling.
