I'm assuming you are talking about the 400EX. You're saying after you changed the rear brakes, they're too tight? A sticking piston in the brake caliper could cause that. Also, the caliper might be binding on the pins and not sliding. This is assuming you installed them correctly. I'm sure you probably did, but I will post the procedure just in case.

You need to make sure the piston is completely pushed in to the caliper. I use a big C clamp to do this. I also remove the caliper and unhook the ebrake setup to do this. I think you also have to adjust the ebrake.
