    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.

    Vittoria Randonneur Cross 26 x 1.75 Tire is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rolls Easy! Good choice for this commuter. No punctures but need more time to be definitive about durability.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good traction, but hard to roll - Bought this tire to replace a competitor brand's faulty one. I have built out a touring bike based on my old MTB and knobby tires are no longer desired or required. Mounting: Was hard to get onto the rim, but not so much as to require any tools. Took about 15 minutes of effort to get the thing beaded. Once on, no issues with fit at all. Checked to make sure that there was no damage and pumped it up to max (70 PSI) to seat it thoroughly. Done and ready for road testing. Found that the tire grips to just about every surface I put it on. Gravel, road debris, dirt path, pavement (wet and dry) gave me no pause. The tire is about as good as it gets in this department. Unfortunately, this excellent traction comes at a price...rolling resistance! I have been using 87 PSI 1.4" wide tires for a while that rolled almost as well as my road only bike. This tire gave me a workout that I was not expecting. Feels like a light drag brake engaged all the time. The compound itself looks fine after 50 miles. Aside from a little "dirtiness", it looks like I just mounted it. The tire appears to be very tough and I would think that it would be great for areas with...well, less than clean bike paths. Rode through some broken glass and stopped to check about 50' later. Nothing to show that it was even on the road. I would give this tire a solid four stars if it were easier to mount and rolled easier. I would recommend it, but only as a commuting tire where distances are short enough that the extra resistance will not be a big factor. For touring or long distance, I will most likely try another model tire.
