stripped seatpost clamp bolt, help!
i was wondering if any of you have ever experienced a seat post clamp bolt (allen head) stripping to the point where you can't remove it. i need to get the post out of my frame, but can't because i can't loosen the bolt. i have a new clamp to replace this one, so trashing the clamp isn't a big deal. i thought of cutting the bolt in half with a dremal tool or hacksaw (there is enough room to get in there to cut it without damaging the frame or post), which seems like it would release the clamp allowing me to remove it. do any of you have a better idea on how to do this? any help would be greatly appreciated.
