    stripted screw in drod outs-help

    ok so the other day i went on an urban and got a flat front tire on my way home. well last night i went to put a new tube in. but when i went to take off the screw that tightens the drop outs around the 20mm axle, one of the screws is stripted and i can not get it out, so is there any way to get it out

    Go to Sears, they have this tool called an EZ-Out or something like that. It's like a drill bit that bites into the bolt and then pulls it out. Is it just the bolt head that's stripped? Or are the threads gone?

    I had to EZ out a bolt on a Chris King hub.... I swear, it took my dad and I over an hour. The head is soft as butter... but the bolt itself beyond the head is CRAZY HARD.

    Dont break the EZ out in the bolt, its made ov very hard steel so if you torque it it'll snap.
