    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.

    by fromGood stand for the money This is a good stand for the price, is it as nice as the TS-2.2? No, but it's also over $100 less. For the price you pay I would say it is good value. If you are truing wheels on a daily basis then invest in the TS-2.2 if not this is a nice stand for a home shop. I will say that the indicactor does stick an awful lot even after I greased it which is a tad annoying, but nothing I can't live with.

    by fromGood for minor truing at home At a reasonable price, you get a wheel truing stand at home where you can do some minor lateral truing yourself. You have to do one side at a time and the locking mechanism for the probe could have been better designed. As a result, it's very hard to get the level of truing as from a "professional" stand.

    by fromHorrible design and quality This thing broke while I was assembling it, one of the bolts stripped out. The fact that it only allows you to true from one side is a joke. It only helps you make the wheel straight, but not necessarily on center. After one use the rest of the bolts either stripped out or the nut that was welded into the frame fell out. I did not expect this from Park Tools. Spend the extra $100 and get the pro stand.

    by fromGood solid piece of equipment great for truing up your wheels. If you want to do some wheel building or re-dishing, spend the extra money and get a tool that automatically centers the rim. It takes a long time to redish wheels with this tool as you only can true one side at a time. Also, the tool is relatively unstable unless bolted to a surface. Takes up a lot of bench space which I would like to use for more than just a wheel tool.
