If they're allens, get a drill bit that just fits in the stripped holes...or even a bit bigger...put it in a vise with about 1/4-1/2" protruding and snap the top off with a sharp blow with a hammer.

Now chuck it in a drill, tighten it real good and run it backwards.

Often the rough end will walk the bolts out.

If that doesn't work, stack 2 cutoff wheels on a dremel and cut a slot for a flat screwdriver.

If THAT doesn't work...allens might be easy to strip, but they have their own pilot hole!

Drill it and use a screw extractor.

Buy a left had tapered drill bit extraction kit of ebay thay are well cheap. I got a snapped of  rusted in bolt out of my sherco fork axle clamp with them. It came out supprisingley easy I didn't even have to use the extraction bit, just take your time start small use a low powered cordless drill so you don't go to fast and end up in trouble. Blow torch the area to heat the caseing abit thay will pop out no problem..

your thread title says thread stripped but your content says rounded off, presuming it was you that wrote them both, which is the more accurate as they are not the same thing.
