    stiff front brake

    hopefully someone can give me a hand with this. over the course of the past couple of weeks my front brake had been getting stiffer and stiffer. it pulls in a bit fairly easily, then hits the hard point, but just pulling to that point isn't enough to make the bike stop completely. if i really giv'er i can get it past that point, but then the bike brakes way to hard. I've had it for 3 years now, and never had a problem with the front brake before. the brake fluid is at the right level as far as i can tell. I've got small hands and reefing on the lever is really getting to me.
    thanks for the help!

    Sounds like your caliper is sticking... was the bike sitting for a while? A rebuild, or replacement would help.
