    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.

    Deore / Sun CR18 8/9-Speed 700c Rear Wheel is rated 3.3333 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly built Machine built wheels these days tend to be OK, but after reading the reviews on this one I thought I would check it before using it. Sure enough it was very poorly built. Credit to REI, I took it straight to the nearest store and they fixed it and after a few rides it still seems OK. However, I got it online to save time and instead I had to take it in and wait a couple of hours to get it fixed. Given the history this wheel has in reviews, I'm not sure why this has not been addressed by REI.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reasonable quality low end wheel Purchased these wheels for an older bike restoration to be used as a backup, casual, vacation, travel bike, interest was inexpensive wheels that can take some abuse and these fit the bill. Had REI techs check the truing at time of purchase, they were ready to ride out of the store and have performed as well as I had hoped. Noticed that there is more flex in the rear wheel than I am used to and the smooth braking surface does not perform as well as higher end wheels when wet.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprizing Value Needed a stronger and wider wheel for a rebuild of an older aluminum road bike to be able to handle occasional fire, gravel and dirt roads. After reading reviews, I was demanding with REI service to check the truing before purchase and then bring it back for truing after the first ride. The matching front wheel seems to be better out of the box but this wheel is a good value and I suspect will hold up well, just needs a little TLC up front. For the price, this wheel exceeded expectations, quiet, rolls easy and brakes well when dry. Note this wheel would NOT work well with 700x23 tires, running with 700x25, suspect 700x32 would be the maximum width. Minor issue, noticed that when the rim gets wet, because they are smooth, braking deteriorates more than I would have expected but I also suspect that as they get scuffed up from use they will work better when wet. If you are looking for a strong wheel and do not care about weight, this wheel is a good value, just stay on top of the truing and spoke tension during the break in period.
