    Sticking brake

    I have Shimano 105 brakes. My rear brake wont release after the brake lever is released. How do I fix this? I checked the PArk tool site but this issue wasnt adressed.

    The most probable cause is a rusted or gunked up cable. Best fix if that's the problem is replace both cable and housing. Less likely, but it could be the pivots on the calipers needing cleaning out and re-lubing.
