    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.

    • Lefty 29er fork with Push-Button Rebound (PBR) offers 90mm of smooth, responsive travel and precise handling; easy-access lockout and rebound controls are glove-friendly
    • Large BB30 bottom bracket design increases stiffness for improved power-transfer

    Cannondale F29 Alloy 4 Bike - 2014is rated4.5out of5by2.
    Rated5out of5byfromFabulous!I have the 2013 model, which is configured a little differently. I have X9 shifters, as opposed to X7, and WTB rims instead of Stans. A hardtail is a hartail is a hardtail. They aren't much different, outside of paint and a few components. What truly separates them is their individual geometry measurements and angles. And, for Cannondale, the infamous Lefty fork. Which, in my opinion, is the smoothest best dampened fork out there. No stiction what-so-ever. Smooth as silk. One of the reasons for this I think is because the Lefty only has 1 dampened tube. All other forks have dampening in one of the tubes and the other tube has the air bag. 2 tubes, one not dampened, causes excess stiction. The Lefty fork, in my opinion, is what separates this hardtail from every other hardtail on the market. That and the fantastic geometry. All our bodies are shaped differently, and the F29, in an XL size, fits mine absolutely perfectly, allowing me to bust out super fast lap times.

    Rated4out of5byfromA well-equipped mountain bikeThis is a very-well outfitted mountain bike, with very competitive components. Cannondale's Lefty technology is head and shoulders above all but the most expensive twin-shock forks. The Stan's Wheels are another big plus, though for some curious reason the wheels are tubeless capable yet the bike is delivered with tubes. The Prologo Nago Evo X8 is a rather high-end seat for a bike in this price range. The thing to be most careful about is the 2x10 gearing. I think I like it better than the 3x9 on my older Cannondale, but I suspect it isn't for everyone. If I were a very serious trail rider I would probably want three sprockets in front, but I'm not, so the 2x10 configuration is growing on me. The only place the F29 4 gets a less than stellar grade is the tires, which are not especially grippy on anything but dirt, noisy on anything but dirt, and the internet is plastered with postings about how delicate they are. Given the 2x10 gearing you would think Cannondale would have chosen a more mixed-use tire, like a Kendal or a Continental Mountain King.
