Might be a number 6..but its a 10mm thread.

You can go to the hardware store and buy a removal bit for a drill. Then you have your buddy hold the bike up while you drill a pilot hole down the middle of your broken bolt head no more than 3/8 inch or so. Then put on the removal bit and drill it down into the hole you made. As you drill in the broken piece should thread right out.

You definely aren't the first person to do this. They make them too small in my opinion. Everyone I know who has worked on peds has dealt with this problem. Now you know to be real careful with those little suckers.
