    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.

    Serfas Drifter City Tire - 26 x 1.5is rated4.5out of5by2.
    Rated4out of5byfromDrifter City TireI have the 1.5 Drifter tire on my high racer recumbent and the 2.0 Drifter tire on my hard tail mountain bike. I installed these to be able to ride more comfortably and safely on crushed lime paths. The drifter replaces some high pressure tires and make the ride comfortable and much more predictable, on the recumbent. I notice the weight and that results in slower average speeds compared to high pressure tires. The Drifter replaces the knobby tires on my mountain bike and there is noticeably less pedal effort and higher speeds. When cornering on dry pavement these tires make a reassuring suctioning sound. I have not used them in the wet. The Drifter tires show virtually no wear and have not flatted. I must admit however that I have ridden them for less than 100 miles. In conclusion I think these can work as good or better as the Continental Town and Country for half the price. They are imo a compromise tire and can do most anything you ask of it but nowhere near what a purpose specific tire can do.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat tire for the priceI've been commuting on a Trek 3700 mountain bike with the 2" tires it came with since 2007. Any change of tire was going to be an improvement, but these tires have been great for me. I put them on this past summer. My commute (8-9 miles each way) involves rough city streets with plenty of potholes, glass, nails and other schrapnel. Not only did these speed up my commute with less tread/thinner tire, I haven't had a flat with them yet and I've been using them consistently for 10 months. I don't generally ride in the rain or snow on purpose, but have had them out on wet pavement days and they did just fine. If only my old Trek were still in as good of shape! I'm finally graduating to a lighter bike and am actually on here today to order another variant of the Serfas puncture resistant tires for that one...
