Rear Brake Locking?
I've changed out my tire, and rear brake pads. Now it seems the brake is locked up. The foot pedal seems responsive. Taking the caliper off I can press the break pedal and see the caliper push out. A c-clamp collapses the caliper just fine. But the bike won't roll, I've ridden it a block, it gets mighty hot, bike isn't coasting at all. What is going wrong with my re-assembly. I've got it close to right, the caliper slips on over the rotor just fine.
I couldn't find any other posts covering this, but I am a newb, not great at finding stuff here, sorry!
