Default Brake tech

So my bike brakes great, but after a few miles the front disc sticks on and it drags progressively worse until I pop the bleeder screw and shed a little fluid. Then it works great for a few miles until the whole thing starts over again. I have rebuilt the calipers, replaced the pads, and flushed out the system several times. There do not appear to be any kinks or restrictions in the brake line. Any ideas? I havn't rebuilt the front brake master yet, so I guess that's next. What about the disc itself? It looks OK, but could it be a source of this problem?
