- Ultegra SL brakes not returning
I’ve noticed recently my front ultegra SL brake caliper doesn’t return to it’s starting position, clamping onto the wheel.
Took advantage of the snow today to give the bike the once over and I can’t work out why it’s happening. I’ve isolated the problem to the caliper, but its clean and well lubed. If I do it manually it goes back fine, so has anyone got any ideas what might be causing it to stick?

If they were working fine they should be okay in the end.
The pads, are they hitting the rim square on? sometimes they wear over the edge of the rim and catch. If they ‘spring’ back when given a bit of help it could be that. Don’t over tighten, I think that’s the main problem with STW builders.
Edit, I’d avoid stripping down at all costs. They do very little mechanical work and as yours can be persuaded back I’d just remove them and lube them and put them through the motions off the bike.Posted 6 years ago
