Sounds like the calipers are locking up. You can try taking the calipers off but don't unhook the brake line. Clean and lube(with brake hardware lube) the pins and slides that the caliper and pads move on. Slap it back together, pump up the brakes and see if that fixes your problem. If not its time for new calipers because they are hanging up.

I'll try that when it warms up a bit,thanks
