I changed rear brake pads a couple of rides ago. Had the bike on the stand tonight and noticed that the rear wheel would spin freely and stop. A slight "click" noise when the wheel is forced through. The rotor is straight. I had the wheel off and did not see anything wrong with the pads(no cracks or debris). The brakes seem to be draging a bit. Help a brother out with this one.

Maybe air in lines
Maybe time to replace fluid
Maybe time to flush or rebuild caliper
If caliper piston does not return, pads wear prematurely, and heat from constant contact can warp your rotor. Just a thought.
