    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.

    Planet Bike Hardcore Hybrid/Touring Bike Fenders - 45mm is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy install, fits well Bought these for my wife's hybrid for the sloppy spring weather. Thought we would take them off for the coming summer but they don't rattle, are really not that noticeable so assuming they handle a crosswind when put on a bike rack when we travel they will stay on permanently. My wife doesn't like to get dirty so these will help in all seasons now. Solid buy.Only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is that I think they should give longer screws in case you are going through the fender braces and a rear rack as I had to. Luckily I had some longer screws around.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Short front bolt Good general purpose fenders at a fair price, but the bolt to attach the front fender was too short for my bike (Trek FX). Rear fender fit well and was not too difficult to attach.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked for me I bought these for my commuter, a vintage Mercian touring bike with 27x1.25 Weinman wheels. I have center pull brakes on it and Blackburn racks front and back and frame was pre-configured for old Blumels fenders. I was nervous about fit, given the age of my bike (custom built in mid 80's). These fit well and went on with a minimum of fuss. The instructions were actually fine for me and I appreciated Planetbike's minimal packaging. I didn't end up using their bolts as I prefer using bolts that utilize an allen wrench (more convenient to carry) instead of a phillips head screwdriver. A nut driver, socket wrench and ratcheting box wrench (all 10 mm) and allen wrench were all helpful in installation. The only issue with the design was the bracket on front fender that mounted to the center of the fork. When slid upward for maximum clearance, the lower top tube bearing race interfered with the bracket but the metal on the the mount was flexible enough to bend when the nut was tightened- so, no problem in installation. I expected to have to improvise more than it turned out, anyway. They look great. Too soon to tell about adjustment. Clearance was fine for me. We'll see if it holds.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my Novara Safari!! Have to say, it fits my bike like a glove. Prior to buying these, I bought a different kind from a Bicycle "expert" on the sunshine bike store. It was garbage and ended up removing it and picking the new pair from REI. The new fenders feel and look very good on my bike.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fit my Kona Dew Plus Perfectly I've been absolutely delighted with these fenders. They fit my Kona Dew Plus hybrid like they were designed for it. I was able to install the fenders in a relaxed-pace hour. They are rock-solid with no rattle whatsoever. I often forget they are there. If I could change one thing, I would add a little bit more (lower) coverage in front. My bottom bracket still gets mud on it and I have to wipe it off once a week to keep it clean. I see now why avid wet-weather commuters frequently tack on another piece of rubber, leather, or plastic to the bottoms of their fenders.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from These are great fenders. I bought these to put on an older bike. The brakes would not allow for the use of these fenders. I had old narrower fenders but wanted to put wider tires for heavy touring. Old campy brakes would not clear the fenders. Wah.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well...small brake issue The fenders were easy to install with the hardware provided. I put these on a relatively new Giant Hybrid which is used for commuting. The only issue I encountered was that the front fender made direct contact with the bottom of the housing for the front brake, which was a direct-pull cantilever brake. I was able to install the fender anyways, and had to tinker with the brake cable, but was able to get the brake working well despite the fender. When the front brake is engaged, it pushes down the front fender, but not enough to make contact with the tire. Because the fender is so flexible, it pops right back up to its original position once the break is released. If I was paranoid, I might worry that the contact with the break could lead to break failure because the cable is coming through the housing at a bit of an angle. I am not actually worried about this. Another comment: as packaged, the support rods for the fenders aren't in the right position. They need to be traveling through the slot in the housing which attaches the rod to the fender so that they're at the right angle to attach to the frame. To get them in the slot, you need to remove the rubber tip on the rod and run them through the slot. This was not mentioned at all in the instructions, fwiw. Once installed, they were sturdy and fit well. Impressive how closely they hug the wheel. You hardly notice them at first. They look really sharp. Hopefully they hold up.
