I tried a new Allen key from a set that Heather bought for her push bike and the reluctant bolt came out and was replaced. So the purpose bought tool was never used.

My family have given me a new pushbike for my big birthday and when I tried to raise the seat the metric Allen key seemed like it would round out the little bolt.  I'm sure everything on the bike would be metric, but I tried an imperial hex key and it fitted much better.
So for future reference, chaps, consider trying an imperial hex key if the metric key is a sloppy fit.  That will save "rounding out" the "hole".
For the modern man who lives in the city, riding a bike might be one of the only ways to escape the humdrum monotony. To take off and ride. To be both at one with nature and one with the bike. To feel masculine. Adam Piggott
