Enik was a German bicycle manufacturer based in Wenden. The company was founded in 1945 in Arnsberg first as a bicycle workshop by E mil Nik las (hence the company name) after his return from captivity. Within ten years, the company had 34 employees, until 1955 were 100,000 wheels produced annually, in 1980 around 250,000 racing, trekking, city, youth and children's wheels. Enik campaigned for many years with the hand-soldered frames of her wheels. The solderers hit after completion a symbol in the frame by means of which it could be checked at any time who had soldered the respective frame. The own frame production was discontinued in the early 1990s, since then Enik had the frames manufactured on behalf in low-wage countries. However, the wheels were all painted, fitted and assembled in Wenden. Also, Enik was the first manufacturer to offer hydraulic brakes for bicycles designed in collaboration with Magura. The company produced not only classic racing wheels made of Columbus tubes (partly under chrome-plated) and Tange but also wheels for track cycling. In 1971 Emil Niklas' son Anton Niklas took over the company, which from then on was also involved in the racing sector and supported the amateur team of NRW. On 1 May 2007 insolvency proceedings were opened due to insolvency and over-indebtedness. It followed the liquidation. From the bankruptcy estate two former executives bought parts of the production and opened in the neighboring community of Wenden, Friesenhagen, a new bicycle factory under the name "N & W Cycle GmbH".

This is not a repair, but a specific painting. Pictures taken in the rain, this is not a foaming paint. What the tubing?
