Thanks to Frank Granli who sent this information to me in a private communication. In Frank's own words:
I have installed some exposed return springs on my 4 LS front brake, after an idea I saw on your excellent loop frame web page. Somebody had done this with their 2 LS rear brake. Is this something that might be of interest for other loopers? I have done so, because my 4 LS brake had a tendency to almost get stuck inonposition, the return movement was very slow. This happened even with freshly cleaned and lubricated brake arms. So, before disaster, I have installed these exposed springs, and they do help.
