Published October 22, 2021

OSAKA, Japan (BRAIN) — Shimano says a website that appears to be offering clearance Shimano bike and fishing gearing is not legitimate.

The company said consumers should beware of shimano-clearance (dot) store. 

"The website is using the Shimano logo, product pictures and other content without our authorization.

"At present, we are petitioning to have the website shut down.

"Shimano is not responsible or liable for any trouble that arises from the use of a fake website.

"We ask that customers take ample care."

The site's "About Us" page gives little hint about its operators. " is an eCommerce company that sells items—but we’re much more than just a website. We’re a team of great people who win and lose together (we prefer winning!)," the page reads.
