    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.

    Yakima Top Tube Adapter

    Loading Ratings & Reviews...

    Yakima Top Tube Adapter is rated 4.2857 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from works, questionable durability Simple enough design to allow odd shaped frames to fit on bike racks. The one concern I have is the construction. One of the hooks has become loose after a few uses. The rivet joining the hook to the bar has loosened up and has a lot of play. The parts have not fallen apart after several years but it always makes me nervous hitting speed bumps with a 40lbs mt bike. On long trips I also lash a cargo strap to carry part of the load (yes, defeats the convenience of a bar), and have reinforced the joint with zip ties just in case. Maybe the construction on more recent models or other brands may prove better.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Didn't think I needed this, but I did... We have several "odd" shaped bikes and I would wrestle them onto my Yakima SwingDaddy rack every time. I'd have pedals sticking into spokes, handlebars jammed under seats, derailleurs getting smushed and all sorts of frustration, then I ran across the TubeTop by Yakima. It solved all of my issues. Bikes sit level. Bikes are easy to line up. Bikes are easier to get on and off the rack. I have less to cuss about. All becasue I started using the tube top on... 29" Stump Jumper FSR Comp 18" girls HotRock 20" girls HotRock and a nondescript raleigh women's bike. So much easier... I have read a few of these reviews and a couple are a bit unfair... If you have a really strange bike (Bike Friday) this thing isn't going to help much. I did have concerns about construction, but this thing is actually pretty durable. If I were to warn about one thing, mine was a bit "sticky" when it came to adjusting length. Made it a LITTLE bit tricky to install the first time.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It functions as advertised Didn't know I needed a tube adapter until I tried mounting the bike on the rack. Bike fits better on the rack with the adapter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well on Townie 3i Step Thru Frame I have used this several times. It works well on a step through frame, Electra Townie 3i. It's a little tricky at first and you may need to move down on the seat post any reflectors on light mounts. I bought this at double the cost of other companies models where the loops don't close around the seat post and stem. Gives me peace of mind. Like other yakima products it's beefy and seems durable for long term use. At first it was kinda of difficult to slide to get the right length. I also bought a second one for my Electra Townie 21d mens frame, but I haven't been able to make it work any better than just putting the bike on the rack. (Front Tire is still really low to the ground and has a tendency to scrap the ground if you go down/up a sharper angle like a driveway.)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like Product is well made, i.e., strong but rather pricey.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works really well on my Trek Cali Even though it's a little bit bigger than my frame, it made my bike nice and sturdy on my Yakima rack for a Honda Civic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best accessory ever The best accessory that helps you save money too, i was looking for a new bike rack because i just got a full suspension bike and the frame is different of course, similar to a womens bike. So instead on spending 200-300 dls at least in a new bike rack, i bought the yakima adapter and it worked perfect. Secure accessory and well done design
