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.
