Cane Creek has been made aware of a fraudulent website selling discounted products, the brand said on social media.
The brand has no affiliation with the website, he added, and it is not an authorized reseller. Cane Creek advises against anyone trying to buy anything there.
Cane Creek’s official websites are canecreek.com and canecreekhelp.freshdesk.com/support/home, and it has no affiliation with any other URL or website, it said. The brand also put a notice on canecreek.com to warn customers about the fraudulent site.
“Well folks, we are always disgusted when people/companies try to scam or take advantage of others,” the Facebook post said. “We were informed earlier this week through a trusted partner that there is a fake website called www.canecreekstore.com.
“We have no affiliation with this website, they are not an authorized reseller, and we do not recommend anyone attempt to purchase anything from this website.
“Please note that our official websites are canecreek.com and canecreekhelp.freshdesk.com/support/home, and we have no affiliation with any other URL or website.
“As always – Cane Creek wants to support riders to the best of our abilities, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us!”

Cane Creek is a cycling company and claims to know the difference cycling makes in the lives of its customers. “We know that every time someone chooses a Cane Creek product, they are choosing to trust us with something that makes their life better,” its website said.
“We will honor that trust by ensuring that every product we bring to market – from a simple bearing to a four-way adjustable damper – is the best it can be.”
