Magnetic pick-up stick, coat hanger, something flexible pushed through from the other side, compressed air. There are numerous ways to get them out and lots of posts on that subject floating around.

Just push the bike over on the effected side and it should fall out.

air compressor. I pushed mine in and it flew out with 120 psi flooding the pipe.

I did the same thing - HINT: put a piece of screen/cheesecloth/small child with a catchers mitt - on the business end of the handlebar - the nut will come out of the hole like a shot and rattle around the garage and stop....who knows where......but it works like a charm. ;)

If you (or a friend) has a compressor... but definatly do something. If you are thinking that for $10 you can just buy a new one... STOP! It will rattle around in there for all of eternity and drive you nuts!

Good luck!
