Ahh more room...
So what is happening to my front and rear brakes right now is this.
When you apply the brakes fully and then release pressure on the lever, one of the brake arms will return to its 'home' position, but one with stay on the rim. The one staying on the rim- it you touch it gentley it will snap back to it's 'home' position. I searched a little on this site and looked at Sheldon Brown's site but nothing seemed to be the same as what is happening. The bike is fairly new (2010 Opus Legatto) and there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with the springs and such inside the brake arms.
Thanks for your time!!
