    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    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.

    Lightweights for Wheels Power Reflectors is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just the ticket These are a little pricey but you get a LOT. Pay heed to the instructions -- this is a 2-backing system. They are less like "stickers" and more like "adhesive membrane". If you get to the point that you're actually handling that membrane, just give up and start again with a new one. One flag on every spoke is, frankly, mega-overkill. I chose to install mine on my rims rather than on the spokes (They are V-section so side-visibility is still fine). In order to remove the paper backing, i had to catch a corner with a knife, but otherwise installation was a snap. DEFINITELY clean your surface with alcohol first! These are real 3M and crazy powerful reflectors. You can even catch hits of them in sunlight. The color is pretty unobtrusive and i know from years of commuting that in a couple months they will be coated with a thin film of black road grime -- but as with reflective sidewall tires **they will still reflect excellently**

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing - worth every penny My road bike has no reflectors, and although I ride with lights, they're not visible in all directions and I don't always recognize when my blinking tail light has died. I bike commute 9-10 months out of the year in Washington State's Lower Columbia Basin, so being visible in the dark & in twilight is critical. I love these things for how incredibly bright they are and for how little weight they add to my bike. I put them on about three-quarters of my spokes and the sides & back of my helmet. That helps to create a profile that's easily recognizable by motorists. No more worries about my little red tail light dying on the ride home. (True, the drunk who forgot to turn on his head lights might still hit me, but I try not to think about that.) Installing them is tedious. Make that TEDIOUS. I wiped off my spokes & did four or five at a time. It was worth the effort. And, as others have noted, the stickers are never going to come off, so I won't have to do this again until I replace my beloved 1987 Trek 460 (which will probably never happen).
