your LBS might have a spare bolt or the hardware store might have one, but if not, i do know a way to somewhat fix it, but it only has a 70% chance of working, you can get some JB Weld, the 2 part liquid epoxy kind that cures fast, then take your hex wrench and coat it with some liquid dish soap, after that take the JB Weld, mix it, and then put it into the stripped hex head, after that take your hex wrench and put it in the hex bolt and clean up any excess, wait whatever time it says it takes for the JB Weld to cure, after it cures you should have a fixed hexed bolt, but like i said this sometimes doesnt work, good luck and i hope you can get it fixed.

*EDIT- this trick also works for stripped threads, but only in low torque applications
