I think I found a temporary fix and made some replacement bottom bracket bushings using a 3D printer!

I'm going to put some more miles on but these are pennies on the dollar to make. Has anybody else tried this?

Also, once I see how durable these are, I'll do a follow up but so far so good!

Didn't work out

The homemade 3D printer bushings didn't work out too well in the long term; even with good 3D printing material from reputable places such as FDM thermoplastics just don't fare too well with thermal loads.

I think it's a great fix if you're a pavement commuter but for the trails, buy the ones for sale on eBay.
