I have some dia compe centerpull brakes from the 70s on my raleigh super record, theyre 40 years old, so yea, theyre not springy. i pull the brake levers and they brake, but they dont spring back up, they just stick, the pads are clean, the springs are greased, the cables are new, is it an installation error? they were like this before the install (had original 40 year old cables until last year) they just dont feel right.... idk if in plagued with bad brake luck but my trek does the same thing.
