i stripped my fork compression bolt thingy by using the wrong size allen key cause i couldn't find my millimeter set, and now that i've finally found the right size, it's too small and it doesn't work. my headset is making cracking noises and it needs to be replaced, but i can't get the damned headset/fork off. how can i get the compression bolt out?!

Loosen your stem and turn your bars counter clockwise.

cut a slit into the center of your bolt and use a butter knife to loosen it.

Anything with 2 wheels and a seat will do.

Yes, that is what he means. I have used this technique before and it worked great.
