sorry guys, but i have a really dumb question. so the other day, i removed the front tire of my stumpy and placed the bike and tire in the back of my tahoe. when i pulled the bike out, i was holding onto the brake handles and like a moron the wheel fits but does not roll because the calipers are too tight. how do i untighten the calipers? sorry for the question.
i have juicy 7 brakes.

Just pry the pistons apart gently. I take the pads out so not to damage and use an open end wrench to compress the pistons back. A 5/8 wrench fits good. But I hear alot of guys use a flat head screw driver between the pads and gently compress the pads back. I have 5's and I'm assuming the 7's are similar. Take your time and be sure not to damage the pads when pushing on them
