Stuck how? Pictures?

If it's just tightened up against the cone, tighten the other side of the hub onto one of your frame's dropouts, with the hub outside the frame and then loosen the side that's stuck.

Had this problem and got the bolt out by removing the axle & clamping it extremely tight in a vice grip for leverage.

I had to use pliers to clamp the vice grip tight enough to keep the axle from spinning. Get it on there REALLY tight.

You didn't try hard enough then...

Tighten it properly to the frame and the axle won't be able to spin...

No. Take the axle out of the hub and clamp it to the middle of the axle. Do NOT let the axle spin in the vice grip, it will absolutely ruin the axle. Just get it on there as tight as you possibly can and then some lol

This method is just begging to strip the bearing seat.

That would be why I said to put the wheel on the outside of the frame(with the non-stuck bolt head in between the dropouts).

This is why I said to clamp the middle of the axle, not the section that the bearing rests on & specifically not the cone. And also to NOT let it slip.

It worked fine for me when I removed a bolt with damaged threads the other day. No damage done to the axle & got the bolt out without a fuss. It was a pain getting the vice grip on tight enough, but was very simple after that lol.

If OP can follow directions he should be alright.?

i forgot to mention its on a g sport rim with spokes so it would be hard to clamp with the vice grip

Ah, skipped right past the "put it in the middle" part tongue

It's still not ideal; my method doesn't risk damaging anything whereas there is a risk of crushing the axle your way.

That would be the hubshell; not the axle. Given you don't know which is which, I'd really recommend you bring it to a bike shop.
