Rounded Ti Bolts

by radar   July 27, 2009  

Tricky one here... rounded a Ti allen key bolt (located on my cranks - hollowtech 2 Ultegras).

Any top tips fpr removing it before I either :
a)make a complete obllox of it and end up having to grind my cranks off and buy a new non-drive side crank,
or
b) lose lots of blood/layers of skin, swear repeatedly then have to take it to the bike shop

Answers on a postcard, please and thankyou in anticipation

get your dremel multi out (you *do* have a dremel multi, right?), grind a slot in either side of the bolt head and undo it with a flat blade screwdriver?

No, but as it is my birthday tomorrow perhaps I will have to buy one!

Twas as I expected - cut a slot for a screwdriver
