    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.

    Novara Presta Tube - 700 x 23 - 25 / 28 - 32 / 35 - 43 is rated 2.75 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Get what you pay for I've used them on both of my road bikes with 23mm and 25mm tires. I usually have them inflated between 90-120 PSI, depending on the tire and riding conditions. I'm cautious with these to avoid potholes, gravel, glass, curb hopping, etc. For a long time, they have been my "spare tube" in the saddle bag. Unfortunately they seem to fluctuate widely in quality. I've had a tube last several months, but also had to replace tubes once a week. Each time they develop a small stress puncture that slowly deflates the tube over a few minutes. After each puncture the tires and rims have been thoroughly inspected for the cause of the leak. I went as far as to replace the rims/tires on one bike, wrongly assuming they were the culprit. As far as air retention goes - I find they need reinflation at least once a week, some needing it every 1-2 days. Without being ridden, I've had a tube drop from 100 PSI to 20 PSI in 4 days. These tubes are cheap and readily available. Ultimately, they serve their purpose as emergency tubes to let me finish a ride, but not much more. I would rather pay more for the peace of mind that the tube will consistently last longer than the ride home.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just Okay I used a few of these and they're nothing to get excited about. I've used them for hundreds of miles using my Conti GP4ks. I've had a number of flats with these and after switching to another brand that I get from my LBS I have gotten far fewer flats. Last time I used them I got three flats on one ride. First swap was fine, second swap I had to patch but the valve broke, so my thrid swap I had to patch again. Needless to say it was a cruddy ride and I ended up calling for a lift home. Only other issue I have had with these tubes is the presta valve. For me they seem to break too easily. When you tighten them with your thumb you have to not tighten them too much otherwise it will snap off. The stem length is good and they are only seven bucks, which is the norm for a regular tube, but just not enough for me to continue to buy these.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Same tubes, lesser packing Same tubes as ever. The only problem I've ever had with them is that the valve's threading goes a bit high, which may make the pump slightly susceptible to catching on the valve. The packaging, however, is a bit flimsy--the plastic is so thin and so well perforated that they're not only easy to get into when you have a roadside emergency, you may find your tubes and sleeves separating simply sitting in the bottom of your bag during a ride.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product works, packaging is iffy Repackaged Kenda tubes. They work as expected. The packaging is pretty fragile. I bought 3 of these in store, one package was coming apart by the time I got to the checkout. The packaging on the tube I kept in my bag fell apart after 2 rides.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only tubes I use. I was pretty excited about the packaging of these tubes (23-25mm) when I first saw them, You can just stick it in your saddle bag and it stays nice and wrapped up. I ride daily and fill up my tires once a week (23mm @ 100-115psi). Haven't had any punctures with these tubes. I mainly ride paved trails and road riding, I've hopped many curbs.
