    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.

    • Mounting bracket attaches to most bikes in about 2 min.; minimum of 0.75 in. of space between the headset and stem is necessary to fit the mounting bracket
    • Once the mounting bracket is installed, affixing the safe-T-seat is a quick, easy process that can be done in about 15 seconds
    • In addition, you can install extra brackets on other bikes, allowing you to quickly swap the safe-T-seat between bikes

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat Carrier for BabyMy wife and I had seen some other folks in the neighborhood with this product on their bicycle and thought it was neat compared to the "rear wheel" style carriers. The iBert fits great on my wife's cruiser bicycle and our 10 month old loves riding. He is crawling, standing, and supporting himself easily so the weight of the helmet does not bother him. We feel very safe that he is in the front, can see what is going on, and we do not have to worry about him riding behind us providing commentary a la Rerun. Easy to install, feels very secure, does not interfere with riding the bicycle.

    Rated4out of5byfromNice Having Your Little One Close to You!I like this seat, and it is something I definitely recommend to other people. I like that my daughter can sit so close to me and that I am able to talk to her and point things out to her. I like that my center of gravity with this seat feels normal and natural. A couple of the things I don't really like is your kids won't fit in this for very long. My daughter is 18 months old, and she will probably only fit comfortably in it for another six to 12 months. It's difficult to stand and ride uphill.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat product! Little one loved itI attached the ibert seat to my K2 Zed. Total installation took about 15-20 minutes. I did have to adjust the front stem to put on the mount that holds the seat. I'd say the hardest part was installing the steering wheel to the seat. The screws are tough to get to at the bottom and did not align perfectly but I got it to work! The iBert seat did not get in the way of steering or riding the bike. My little one was definitely confused at first, he did not know if he enjoyed it or not. But he did not cry so i will take that as a win! We did buy the new version which comes with the steering wheel. He had a blast turning the steering wheel. Very excited to use this more when the weather gets better. I definitely prefer this to other traditional seats for babys behind the rider. I was able to talk to the little one the entire time and make sure he wasnt getting bored. This is recommended for minimum of 12 months. Our little one was 11 months when we first used it. He is standing, doesnt mind the helmet, and had a great time!

    Rated4out of5byfromReally cool, but wobblyI really like it overall, but I wish the back was a little taller for a bit more support for my son and it was wobbly on the very first ride--after we had just tightened everything.

    Rated5out of5byfromLots of fun, a few compromisesMy daughter loves this and I'm a little disappointed this is probably the only summer we'll get to use it since I think she'll be too big (at age two and a half) to fit next year. The included, but optional to install, steering wheel is a nice touch too. There are some compromises if you have a shorter top bar. I can squeeze in between this carrier and my bike seat, but getting back up is a little tricky. Not the fault of the carrier. Also, there is a quick release coupling, but when the carrier is removed, there's still a 6-8" aluminum stake attached to the headset pointing toward you. All in all, it's been a lot of fun and I'm quite happy with the purchase

    Rated4out of5byfromnice seatThe seat is nice and neat and my child likes it. However, it is not possible to stand up and pedal. So it is quite tricky to ride uphill.

    Rated4out of5byfromGood seat, great placementGood seat, great placement means that the child sits right in the sweet spot for keeping balance and weight in proportion. Seats that mount to the rear bias all the weight over the back axle, this seat puts everything right in the middle so your bike will handle nice and neutral. My bike had a relatively low rise stem and flat handlebar and we had trouble getting my daughter in the seat when she had boots on in cold weahter. I've since put a riser bar on my bike (wanted one anyway) and she has much better clearance and I'm not bumping into her back as much. One thing to note is if you are using an mtb less than 16" frame size you will only be able to dismount off the back of the bike as their will not be enough room to hop forward, you could set your seat back further or get a layback seatpost but I have not had any situations that made the inability to dismount forward over the top tube a problem. My daughter loves her seat and has not complained once, in fact she's usually laughing and talking to me.
