Is it stiff with the chain off? what brand BB is it? If it is, bad bottom bracket, if not it could be to tight of an axle. If you remove the BB and it turns easy and smooth as glass and once it is installed it does not. still bad BB. One other worst case it may be that your BB shell on the frame needs shaved/faced.
There are two kinds of people in the world, "Those who help themselves to people, and those who help people!"
