Question about Cycling
Where the brake cable connects to the brakes there is a nut and bolt on which the brake calipers turn to close and open when the brakes are applied. They open by a spring pushing them outwards and close by the cable pulling them in when the brakes are applied. This bolt needs to be oiled regularly so the spring can disengage the brakes. Oil the bolt and engage and disengage the brakes a few times. If it doesn't free them you might need to loosen the nut a little.
