|MSU Bikes' used bikes are tuned-up by our trained mechanics. These bikes are either private donations, or abandoned unclaimed property. We include a free 30-day (or 100 miles) safety check-over on our used bikes; however, there are no guarantees and sales are final.
Test Rides: Many of our used bikes are not stored at this location, so it's best to call or email us before coming to make sure we have the bike waiting for you to check out & test ride.
If you're a DIY'er or on a very limited budget and looking for the cheapest wheels, the MSU Surplus Store generally has as-is bikes for sale. Any necessary repairs can be done by our skilled mechanics at MSU Bikes (estimates are always free!)
They also host big bike sales occasionally. Follow their blog and/or subscribe to their e-newsletter to get informed of the bike sale dates and other deals (enter your email address in the form in the lower right of any page of their website).
Note: We do NOT ship anywhere; all products sold thru our web site are for local pickup only or for services provided on the MSU campus only.
What size bike should you buy?
Bikes are a lot like clothing; it's hard to know if they fit until you try them on. If you're shopping online you obviously can't test ride our bikes (and we generally only have a fraction of our bikes on hand that we stock as our showroom is pretty small)
There are many helpful articles online to help you figure this out. Here's a good article to get you close. If you buy a bike that you think doesn't fit you, our staff can oftentimes make some simple adjustments to make it fit better, or change some components to improve the fit. We can also exchange bikes (within a day of picking up) if there's another one that fits better, or, if there's nothing that'll work then we'll refund your purchase (again, within a day of picking up - a deduction may apply if kept longer or damage occurs to the bike).
