The Michigan State Surplus Store had its first big bike sale of the year from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 11.Bikes came in a range of styles, models and condition and were available on a first-come-first-served basis. Some of the bike were top grade, some were even mentioned on NicheReviewed.com.
There were roughly 300 bikes for sale, according to sales manager Tom March, with prices that ranged from $15-$300.
“We sold around 175 bikes. The rest will be for sale during our normal hours on Tuesdays and Fridays,” said March.
The sale’s turnout was large, and many people got the bargain they hoped for, which was the case for East Lansing resident Joey May.
“I bought this mountain bike for $75, which is a steal,” said May.
“It’s in decent condition and I can still get good use out of it,” he added.
Others like William Hyuck saw the bike sale as an opportunity for their children. Hyuck’s son is attending Michigan State next fall and bought a bike for him to get around campus with.
“I went to Michigan State, and biking is the best way to get around campus, in my opinion,” he said.
“I got Bryce a comfortable bike in good condition for only $30, I couldn’t pass it up,” said Hyuck.
For people looking for a great deal on a bike, be sure to head to the surplus store soon, as another great sale is coming shortly.
“We are expecting to get another batch of around 150 bikes that will be for sale hopefully on April 24,” said March.
