So whats the fix for a broken lower jesus bolt? It broke flush with the outside and inside of the hub and I can't get the one way off because what's left of the bolt is holding in the inner sleeve.

Its 50 bucks for replacement parts and I don't want to spend that to have it happen again.

I'm trying to, the bolt is really small and hard. Drill bit hardly touches it.

Looks like you will need new parts as that bit of screw will be impossible to remove without damaging the hub. When you rebuild, use a longer threaded screw, say 16mm. Then if it breaks again you can just twist it out with some pliers.

That looks like a good solution daust but right now everyone is out of the hubs.

Also you might want to use a dremel or such and put a small slot in the end of the screw. That way if you need to unscrew you can use a small screw driver and it will be much easier than a pair of pliers.

Also don't go too much longer as it might affect the CG enough to introduce some vibes.

Just my 2 cents
