The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.
Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.
Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

Rated5out of5byAdam WerdfromSo happyI was looking for a rack that is super sturdy and folds down to be stored out of site in a NYC 1 bedroom apt. This stand is perfect! It is assembled in 3 minutes. Just simply amazing.

Rated5out of5byJT in MDfromDoesn't get any better than thisEarlier this spring I purchased both this stand and the Park PRS-25 stand to compare side-by-side. At the time I went with the Park stand, and I stand by nearly everything that I wrote in my review of the stand at the time. However, there is one aspect of the Park stand that I have come to appreciate makes it less than ideal for my needs: the bike cannot rotate relative to the two legs of the stand. I didn't really expect this to be a problem at the time, but it turns out that even on slightly sloped surfaces (such as my driveway) the stand becomes fairly easy to tip over. I could somewhat work around it, but for the price of the Park stand, I just couldn't justify having to compromise.
So I returned the PRS-25 stand to REI and am now the proud owner of the Pro Elite. Maybe I should have gone with it in the first place - I had been using an older model repair stand made by the same company for over 10 years now, and I have always been pleased with it. I will say that I love the clamping mechanism on this stand - it is simple and I really cannot imagine improving much on it for my purposes. The design of this stand does allow the bike to be rotated relative to the tripod base, so it is possible to keep a bike balanced on a moderately sloped surface. And for those who care, this stand does fold up smaller than the Park stand, and it does not require the clamp to be removed like the Park stand does.

Rated5out of5byM3PDfromThe BestI first bought a bargain stand and found the stability and overall quality to not suit my needs. This stand is very well made and I love it.

Rated5out of5byBig Big MikefromSuperJust wanted to add to the strong reviews.
I recently purchased this stand (Feedback Pro Elite) and love it. I have not used the top of the line portable Park stand, but I do have their premium clamp permanently bolted to a wall in my garage. I do think the Park clamping system is slightly better but this does not diminish enthusiasm for this Feedback. The Feedback clamp is super strong and easy to use.
The stand is super stable. I put a fully outfitted Surly LHT (64cm) on the thing and it doesn't wobble one bit. The quality of this stand is professional grade. I'm tough on tools but am very please with this one.
Having a portable stand (especially in a bag) is a great asset for home or travel repair.

Rated5out of5by4SEEAYEfromMy 2Very nice stand. Quality construction to say the least. The clamp is a cinch to use. I've read in reviews that it is a tad difficult to compress the clamp before tightening. My suggestion is that when you lift the bike into the clamp just lean forward and let your chest push the clamp initially. This is a very natural motion and makes the process quick and easy. You will be tight and right in under five seconds. For those of you who haven't seen this stand in person it has a mechanism that by pushing snugs up the clamp on your frame so that it only takes a quick couple of turns on the knob to be completely locked in. A very cool design. The only issue is that it is cumbersome to hold the bike with one hand and press the clamp. By grasping your frame with two hands and just leaning in on the clamp it will set with enough pressure to totally let go of the bike. Then you just turn the knob a couple of times and you can get to work. Lightning quick. Looks great in red and comes with a sturdy carry sack. You mind won't believe how light this thing is after looking at the size and materials. Two enthusiastic thumbs up.

Rated5out of5byScouter50fromGreat Work StandMy family recently got into Mountain Biking & Rather than pay the bike shop to perform the routine maintenance & minor repairs I opted to buy the tools needed. After some research I decided on this work stand, while comparison shopping I took into account the Stability & ease of use. This one by far outweighs the competition. It is very light weight, easy to set up & folds down to a nice compact size for storage. Oh & did I mention it even comes with a nice heavy storage bag. The Icing on the cake is the quick release function which allows you to easily release the jaws & remove your bike no messing around with a hand crank while trying to hold up your bike. This is also a great feature for mounting your bike on the stand as well , just lift up your bike & slide the jaws shut, you do still have to hand tighten but it makes it much quicker. Bottom Line This Stand is Awsome !!!

Rated5out of5byBradfromShould have got this sooner!Used a small topeak flashstand for years until it broke. With that and being tired of crouching on the floor I decide to spend the bucks on the feedback pro on sale. Did not regret it from the moment I opened the box. Easy to set up, easy to put the bike on and sooo much easier to work on the bike. I also like that it's easy to fold up and store when not in use even opt to take along to a bike event if needed.
