I unhooked the brake resevoir thinking it was the froze object only to find its the actual pedal thats froze. Any great words of wisdom on this? Tricks?

The pedal can freeze on its pivot if its not lubricated occasionally. Water gets in there and causes corrosion which freezes the pedal. This is going from memory...remove the retaining nut and work the pedal off. You'll need to clean all the corrosion and gunk from the pivot as well as the inside of the pedal, then lubricate liberally with a waterproof grease and reinstall.
