My brakes work alirght when i pull them and come to a stop, but then the levers stay in the braking position and dont spring back to the normal place. How do i make them spring back to the original postition.

Tighten ur springs by loosening the mount bolts, and using an adjustable wrench and adjsting the left spring clockwise and the right spring counter clockwise, or get evolvers, they show u which way to do it.

You have that reversed, he doesn't have Odyssey evolvers my friend... Tektro's are the opposite of what you just said.

You have a kinked cable somewhere, look for a mark on your cables that looks like a bend or something, if you cant find it it's probaly in the first cable out of your lever anyway, replace it and test.
