anybody have any tips on a way to get a bolt loose on a seatpost clamp that refuses to budge? the more i try to grip as tight as possible with pliers or a socket wrench, because it was strong-armed on there to begin with not to mention that judging by the rest of the bike it's been sitting unused outside for quite sometime, any tool i try keeps just slipping off and serving to make the partially stripped bolt even more rounded.
before i end up just completely rounding this thing out and having to cut it off completely, does anyone have any ideas for ways to loosen it up? i'm somewhat of a bike repair "newbie" and don't have many bike-specific tools yet but rather just a decent collection of "regular" tools, so something that might be done with what i have sitting around would help.
i did some googling and only really found results having to do with auto repair, and they mostly just recommended a Craftsman set of damaged-bolt remover sockets. is that really what i have to do to get this off, or might there be a "trick" to it?
