I was installing cleats onto a new pair of shoes the other day and had the head of what I think was a defective bolt shear off on me (oddly enough this was while trying to loosen, with very little torque applied - must have had a bad thread). I was able to use the second set of holes to achieve a similar position, but would like to remove the bolt at some point if possible. Just not sure how to go about it.
For reference, a picture of SPD cleat mount area:
The remains of the screw are about even with the yellow bit on the sole so there is not enough sticking up to get a normal grip on it with a pair of pliers. I can get a pair of mini visegrips onto the screw coming from the top, but of course can't grip it well enough to turn the screw that way. Figured the clever folks in here might have some ideas.
