Seriously getting on me titties this bike now

I've just tried to tighten my chain with me old man, but the nuts what you use to measure the chain distance out has seized

So we tried yanking it and now the bolt has completely snapped off, so one side of the wheel won't be balanced out now

Any ideas on what i will need to do to get the old thread bolt that snapped out?

And how do i renew it?

Its every mechanics worst nightmare snapping a bolt, what you need is a bolt extractor, you need to drill a hole in the end of the bolt and then use a bolt extractor.

These are snap-on ones but I'm sure you'll find them much cheaper at Halfords etc.....
