    XT brakes sticking closed...

    I just got some new brakes (XT) for my bike and they were working fine at the shop, but now you can't pull the lever more than 5mm. Help me please!

    did you pull the lever without a rotor in there? Try gently prying the pads apart, a tire lever is ideal, just try not to chew up the pads. Then put the wheel back in and see if anything gets better.
    Don't you hate it when a sentence doesn't end the way you think it octopus?

    yep, I managed to figure that out like 10 minutes after I posted this...the bike must have fallen over in the car and pulled the lever. Thanks!
