    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.

    Topeak Basket - Front is rated 4.3333 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Topeak front basket for Short rides The basket is very easy to mount on the bike. The ability to take it on and off for stops at the Farmer's Market or grocery store is great. The basket does not hold much weight and it adds quite a bit of instability to the bike mounted on the handle bars. The bracket that allows you to take it on and off is made of plastic and not the strongest hold. I have the Topeak front and back basket. I like the back basket more. It is a little more stable and you don't have to worry about control and steering when the basket is on the back. Plus, it holds more than the front basket. I use the back basket for my groceries and the front basket for my 7 lb. puppy. Or vice versa depending on the day. My puppy rides well in the back basket. He can curl up and lie down on a long bike bike. I made some minor adjustments to both the back and front baskets. I added outdoor carpet to the bottom of the baskets and fitted the handle of the baskets with an old Osprey water pack hose. (you can buy replacement hoses at REI). I simply measured the hose to fit the length of the basket handle, slit the hose the full length down one side, slid it over the basket handle and taped it around at the ends and in the middle with packaging tape. It makes the basket more comfortable to carry when it's unmounted from the ToPeak rack while you shop. The wire mesh on the basket isn't the strongest either. Would I recommend it to a friend? Depends on what they are using it for. Quick trips to the grocery store with a short shopping list or trips to the library, yes, it's good for that. Long trips, no. It creates too much instability and loss of handle bar control, especially on a windy day. Not sure why this is? My old wicker basket was great and never created control issues.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functional and easy to install Bought this for my wife's cruiser as a gift. It mounted easily, is sturdy and the basket is easy to clip and unclip from the mount. The basket is plenty large for a jacket, small purse etc that she stows while biking. Overall great purchase.
