comment How to remove crank arm with broken bolt on SRAM Omnium crankset
I'd have thought with the bolt out a crank puller would be able to do the job, assuming you can get one in the right sizes.

One of these was likely involved en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screw_extractor.

Can you take some pictures? Also, there should be 2 hex bolts on top of each other one a smaller right hand threaded one and a larger left hand threaded. Are you turning the smaller internal one? If you remove the larger external one, you should be able to see what's going on with the internal one a little more clearly, ie. is the head still attached to the thread.

comment Use a lock nut on a presta valve?
Lining the logos up is useful for finding what ever it was that put the hole in your tyre in the first place.

comment how many bike I can carry in my sedan?
I'm sure the racks will say on them. Have you looked or read the descriptions? Also, too broad?

They're standard M5 bolts, I believe, you should be able to find them almost anywhere.

comment Valve Extender for Kids Bike
Yeah, an adapter is the best idea, that's why I didn't add it as an answer. But, wheels that are too small to fit the pump head inside of are not usually under that much stress. I tried this because specialist bits and pieces are hard to get hold of here.

You'll need to fill the old hole with something too, or it'll pop the tires when you try and pump them up.

I don't think these'll work, they're usually not bendy.

Might not be practical, but I had a similar problem on a pram with plastic wheels and drilled new valve holes at an angle.

comment Do more expensive bib shorts make a difference when sat on a turbo trainer for hours on end?
I've found quality shorts make a bigger difference on outdoor rides. At home I use which ever shorts are clean at the time and whilst the fancy ones are more comfortable to wear, fit better etc., there's not a lot they can do to stop my bum going numb. This is most likely a personal thing though, not everyone's riding or nether regions are the same.

comment Felt carbon steerer compression plug removal
Looks to me like you just twist the top plate clockwise. Have you tried that? A strap wrench or jar opener might help if it's really stuck.
