    The REI Member Dividend

    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.

    Topeak Explorer MTX Tubular Rack with Disc Mountsis rated3.8571out of5by7.
    Rated4out of5byfromExcellent qualityWhile this was a little difficult to install because I had to bend and push things to get them to line up with the screw holes on my bike, I have had no issues with it since. Easily accepts the Novarra Panniers. I would recommend using some locktite on the screws as I has to tighten them after only 50 or so miles of use. Only unfortunate thing I can think of is using anything non-Topeak MTX panniers prevents me from using the Topeak TrunkBags as they don't appear to clear the pannier brackets when you slide it in.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat Match with Novara Single PannierSetting up Hybrid Bike as a commuter. Picked up this Topeak Rack & a pair of Novara 'Round Town Single Bike Pannier. Makes riding easier by putting tools, tubes, pump, as well as a backpack on the bike. Had the bike shop install the rack, so I don't know about the install, but it does block the seat tube rear reflectors, the bike mechanic installed the reflector on the rack. I'm happy with this purchase and am happy with the Novara Panniers.

    Rated5out of5byfromIt Does the JobMy wife uses it to carry her backpack when commuting to and from school. She uses a net and it works great. If it was any bigger we would recommend purchasing the basket that attaches to the rack.

    Rated1out of5byfromNot meant for women's petite sized bikesI purchased this for a Cannondale Women's Petite sized bike. Though this says one size fits all it requires me to purchase extender arms that are not available from REI. Purchased elsewhere would be an additional $20 by the time they were delivered. Once it it set up on the short bike the basket, the main reason I wanted it was sitting too high up and interfered with my but on the seat.

    Rated4out of5byfromGood rack, needed longer boltsI bought this when my rear rack for my old bike wouldn't clear the disc brakes on my new one. The only problem was getting the rack to share the same eyelet with 2 fender struts on each side; I got 2 longer bolts from a dept. store and I have been enjoying this sturdy rack to carry my panniers ever since.

    Rated4out of5byfromDidn't fitBeautifully well-made product, but wasn't tall enough to fit my Novarra Buzz (size "L"). Also, the rack has a rather large, square area where it bolts to the holes near the wheel hub which in turn requires a large flat area to mate against.
