Can a 3D printed bottom bracket shell stop press-fits from creaking? This boutique Spanish bike brand seems to think so…

Angle Cycle Works – a boutique Spanish bike manufacturer – has used a combination of titanium, 3D printing and fastidious attention to detail to produce the Heaven, a stunning all-road (or ‘soft-gravel’, as Angle Cycle Works calls it) machine.
