I have been using xtr disk brakes for over a year and find the brake pads drag due to caliper pistons not fully returning. Shimano has replaced the calipers but they still done perform 100%. Is there some service that can be done ei. cleaning the caliper pistons, that would solve the problem?
Are the lines completely bled? If there's any air at all in them, you can experience troubles like this as well as "mushy" brakes.
