    How do I Loosen M395 shimano hydraulic brakes.

    Brake pads are applying pressure (enough to provide resistance not a full stop) when brake handles aren't depressed, (bike is new). I'm guessing there is an adjustment screw to lessen pressure. Is there something I'm overlooking? (discs are not warped)

    There's a ton of threads on this, search for 'dragging' in this forum.

    Could be centering issue, in which case you can try recentering and/or using various means to nudge while tightening down the bolts.

    You can also push back the pistons with a tire lever or box end wrench.
    What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Unless it does kill you, in which case, you wouldn't be here to dispute the point.
