Re: Brake Calipers Not Opening Enough.

Went to local bike store and grabbed a bottle of bike cleaner and rotor cleaner, they didn't have anything to lube brake pistons there in stock. Gave it a good clean and it seems to have fixed the problem, I do have a feeling that it needs a bleed at some point though as they do feel a lot softer than I remember.

Used to pay to get it serviced every 6 months, but since the place closed a year ago I haven't done any :P
