Front Calipers sticking

My front wheels don't spin freely like before. Could the Master Cylinder valve spring be sticking that causing the Front Calipers to grab the disc? I think inside the Master Cylinder the fluid is not moving back in place. This is my frist time around with the brake system.

See the Master Cylinder in Action here.

Maaaybe. I'd think it was more a result of not regularly changing brake fluid. Brake fluid is hygroscopic, meaning it absorbs water from the air. If the fluid isn't changed, the moisture in the brake fluid can lead to corrosion in the entire brake system. Have you bled the brakes lately?

Check to see if your brake pads have worn down at an angle. If the caliper assembly is not free to move this can happen.
