My first thought was....


But seriously, there could be LOTS of reasons for this. Not in any order but....
1) Brake pad wear
2) Rim material, wear, painted, condition
3) Cable adjustment
4) Cable binding
5) Gyro adjustment (if using)
6) Lever adjustment

I don't really know, but would be my guesses
