Re: Front brakes hanging
Could it be that the disk bobbins are not floating as they should be?
Even so, the pads should move back so they don't touch the disk.
I would lift the front of the bike and spin the wheel to see what is making contact, applying and releasing the brake to see if the calipers were releasing.
