Okay, I removed my front caliper from the rotor to service my fork. Well, now my caliper is back on but my rotor makes a rubbing noise the whole time my wheel spins. It also has a slight resistance to it. I cannot seem to move the caliper to stop it. Any suggestions?

dont give up, if it worked before you took it off then itll work again. the first time i took my calipur off it took me 30 min to get it back working right again.

When you took your caliper off, there may have been some shims (super thin washers) that spaced your caliper out from your frame. Theoretically, you could have removed your caliper and when you pulled the bolts out and removed it the shims fell on the floor without you knowing. So you need to get some shims from your lbs or very thin washers from the hardware store. Add/remove shims until your caliper clears your pads.
OR if you have mechanical disc brakes you should be able to adjust the pads by rotating some adjustment knobs on it. Or tighten/loosen your brake cable.
Hope this helps. If I was with you it would be a lot easier to show you than describe.
Good luck to ya!
