Hi!! I removed my front wheel the other day and being the idiot I am sometimes, I accidentally squeezed the brake lever!! When I went to reinstall the front wheel, the brakes were dragging when I spun the wheel. What is the proper procedure for me to "reset" the brakes into the proper position? Thanks a lot!

edit: I have Hayes HFX-9(?) hydros!

Just pry (gently) the pads apart with a CLEAN flat blade screwdriver, put your wheel in, and squeeze the lever a couple of times. Easy as pie.
