My rear hub is almost locked completely, I believe its a Odyssey hub and I have soaked it in oil but its not loosening up, and i also tried to take it apart but it wont come loose, any suggestions on what it could be or how to take it apart???

When I pedaled backwards it acted like a brake, so i don't think muscle has anything to do with it.

do you mean it slows the hub down, or tries to roate it backwards?

It sounds fucked. Make sure its not over tightened and post pics so we can help you without taking shots in the dark. You have to understand we don't have any clue what your looking at.

Pedaling backwards would not slow you down on a fixie, it would stop you/make you go backwards.

The hub is literally fixed to the driver/cog, so one hub rotation = one driver rotation, there is no coasting.
