How to remove a bolt that doesn’t have a head?

I was fixing my bike and while doing so the head of the bolt I was using snapped off, I have other bolts but I don’t know how to remove the one that’s currently in the hole!

Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Drill it out. If it isn’t threaded into the metal, you could use a punch and tap it out with a hammer. If you have to drill it out, you’ll need a tap-and-die set to redo the threads in the hole.

      Based on what you said this makes the most sense. You could try drilling it and using an ease out to remove it

    screw extractor may work. if you don't have and have never used ... suggest hiring a handymen or bike shop to fix this. it is necessary to drill into the dead bolt without damaging the threads to get the extractor into place.

  • You need to use a tool called an easy-out.  It is a left-hand screw tapered tap. You drill a hole into the bolt then screw in the easy-out.  There comes a point when the resistance to the easy-out forces the bolt out.
