    Item # 865720

    REI Members get back an estimated $ 59.90 on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    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.

    by fromSatisfied I am a casual rider and bought this to replace a mountain bike almost 20 years old. Overall, I am happy with the value. The disc brakes and the front shocks are nice additions in this price range. As other have mentioned, the seat is poor and the weight is a little high, but a seat is easily modified and weight is not the primary factor for this type of bike. If you are a looking for a solid purchase, this is a good option.

    by fromworks as intended I've been saying to my wife for years that I want to purchase a bicycle, at first to give a shot at triathlons, but then didn't want to spend $2000 on a bike. Lately I've been wanting a bike to try and cut down on gas mileage, and a hybrid seemed versatile enough. I needed an XL bike so stock was sort of limited, but the saleman at REI who was awesome spent a good 15 minutes explaining different types, gave me 3 options that should suit my needs, and this one was in my price range. To me who hasn't owned a bike in 20 years since I was in grade school I couldn't tell any subtle differences. I'm sure there's others that will be just as fine, but a week into this bike I'm really satisfied. At $600 even though pricey, I think it can pay for itself in a year or two by cutting down on gas.
