    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.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    • Compact crankset is mechanically simpler and more reliable than a triple crankset; and it delivers virtually the same gearing
    • Shimano long-reach caliper brakes are compatible with fenders (not included) and deliver dependable braking power
    • Sturdy Weinmann rims, dependable Novatech hubs and Clement Strada LGG tires provide smooth-rolling performance
    • Eyelets for fenders let you outfit the Strada for wet-weather or commuting (not included)
    • Replaceable rear derailleur hanger helps extend the usable life of the frame
    • Specs on our Novara Strada road bike are subject to change

    All bicycles sold at REI include a free warranty tune-up. New bikes go through a normal break-in period, after which readjustment is important for longevity and performance. Bring your new bike in to your local REI for its free tune-up within 20 hours of use or 6 months from purchase, whichever comes first. Contact your nearest REI bike shop to schedule this important service.

    Rated5out of5byfromNovara bikeGetting ready for Tri and needed a road bike. It has been perfect to get me going and have had no issues with it

    Rated5out of5byfrom2013 Strada Excellent BikeI sat on many big brand road bikes and found them uncomfortable so i bought a hybrid for comfort. After six months I had outgrown the hybrid and need to step up to a road bike. On a whim while having my hybrid serviced at REI, I sat on a Novara Divano in stock. I really liked it, but wanted better components. The Strada was suggested to me. I bought one, sight unseen just based on brother the Divano. The Strada has the same geometry and felt great when it arrived. I took the bike home, fit it to my preferences and began training with it and two weeks later took it to my first triathlon where I felt like a champ, even if 2/3rds of the field finished ahead of me. Compared to my heavier hybrid (big brand name, and cost about the same), this bike is faster with a better gear selection for road biking, handles better, takes the road vibration and harsh bumps and jolts of old roads much better and weighs a lot less, but feels sturdier. Mine is a large and weighs 22 lbs, 2013 model. It is heavy for a road bike compared to specs on big brand bikes (18 to 20 lb range), but it rides so nice that I don't even care. I've bombed driveway lips and rough asphalt that would ping the rims and pinch flat the tires on my other bike, without fear or flat tires. I feel like if I had found this bike first, I never would have bought my hybrid in first place. The big brand bikes are hard and uncomfortable, and "promise" anti-vibration features, but the Strada "is" comfortable, very adjustable and really does soak up the road bumps. Hopefully the 2014 is just as good.

    Rated5out of5byfromExcellent BikeThis was my very first road bike, and as an asthmatic, I was looking forward to seeing what I could do with a road bike in terms of exercise. I gotta say I was impressed when I first took this bike for a test drive, it was very responsive, and the brakes were OKAY, but after having the tech adjust them, the brakes are what I expected them to be. My first round with this bike was 10.37 miles, of which around 1 mile was uphill, and it pulled through like a champ.

    Rated4out of5byfromBombproofI've had mine a long time and aside from being a tank, I wouldn't change a thing. From the S-T-P, to MS Century Rides, and Cadillac Mtn in the rain, this bike and I have spent some "quality time" together. Perhaps because its a little heavy it can take the punishment of Maine roads; anything less would have folded.
