    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.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    After its initial break-in period you might notice your bicycle performing less responsively than the day you brought it home. Not to worry, this is typical of all new bicycles and simply reflects that cables have stretched or their housings have seated themselves into final position. To keep running at peak performance, all REI bicycles come with a FREE warranty tune-up, which should be accomplished between the first 100-200 miles of riding or after the first two months if you're accumulating miles less quickly. Contact your nearest REI bike shop for details and an appointment for this important service.

    Loading Ratings & Reviews...

    Novara Ponderosa 24'' Bike - 2014 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome kid's bike! This is the best bike you can buy your kid. It has an awesome suspension fork, so your kid can do dirt jumps and ride hard trails. The Geometry is spot-on, so your kid can have a nice stable ride. I have had this bike since I was 9, and I'm 13 now. I still use it, though, and i can still rock the trails and the jumps with it.
