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.

Shimano M540 SPD Bike Pedals is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Workhorse SPD I originally bought these pedals for my Cannondale Prophet, for light freeriding, cross country, and epic day rides. The all-metal construction isn't the lightest, it sure makes these babies stand up to some heavy abuse. Pedal strikes on rocks, laying the bike down: whatever you can dish out, they'll take. After awhile, I installed these on my track bike to commute to work. They stood up to abuse in Boston, New York, and Atlanta. I crank the tension WAY up to keep me locked in, and I like the minimal float (I sold a pair of speedplays because they felt comparably sloppy, float-wise). The real cons for me? I guess to shave a few grams, Shimano removed the traditional pedal-wrench-compatible where you could remove and install these with a pedal wrench. You're left to install these with only an allen wrench on the inside of each spindle�??so if they get stuck on, you're in for some work. A local bike shop installed a new drivetrain on my bike, forgot to lube the threads, and I was left with a stuck pedal, and eventually a cracked spindle. Hence, I'm on my second pair of M540s. I'll be mounting them to my Ti road bike soon. Bottom line? These things are tough enough for the trail, and reliable enough for daily commutes in slush, rain, and muck. They're my go-to for pretty much everything on a bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Bought these to replace my old SPD pedals on my vintage Fuji touring bike. That pair was over 20 years old and saw a lot of hard use in the past 5 or 6 years. Gotta say the last pair made me a believer in Shimano pedals. The new pedals are easier to adjust, easier to get in and out of and overall a major improvement. They have a little more free play while still feeling very solid under foot which makes them overall more comfortable for me. I like the feel of SPD pedals in general and these pedal are a definite step up in terms of comfort. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent pedals I have a pair of SPD pedals on each of the bikes I use. They are great and easy to use. Never had any adjustment issues or difficulty in clipping-out. They work exactly as desired. These particular pedals are rugged and light-weight for everyday used.
