    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.

    Made for kids who’ve left the training wheels in the dust, the Novara Pixie 20 in. 6-speed has components similar to adult mountain bikes. An ideal bike to let eager kids set the pace on outings.

    • Nimble 6061 aluminum frame is easy to manage and the SR Suntour XCT Junior suspension fork offers 40mm of travel to soak up bumps for enhanced control
    • 6-speed drivetrain is controlled with a single, intuitively easy-to-use Shimano Revo twist shifter; a flick of the wrist changes gears for easy pedaling
    • Hand-operated, linear-pull brakes provide responsive braking power
    • All-terrain tires are mounted on sturdy rims for excellent performance on and off the road
    • Front down tube deflector guards against flying mud
    • Sturdy chainring guard helps keep clothes from getting grease marks or stuck under the chain
    • Kickstand lets a girl prop the bike up when done riding or stopping for the ice cream truck
    • Specs on our Novara Pixie 20 in. 6-speed girls' bike are subject to change

    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.

    Novara Pixie 20'' 6-Speed Bike - 2014

    Loading Ratings & Reviews...

    Novara Pixie 20'' 6-Speed Bike - 2014 is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Component upgrades that make this better My 7 year old daughter was not strong enough to shift to the two largest cogs using the grip shifters and could not climb the local hills with the bike set to the largest cog (28 teeth). I installed component upgrades that make the bike usable for her. The *retail* price difference between the stock parts and the upgrades I chose is small. I hope that REI adopts these changes to make the Pixie a much more usable bike. I heartily recommend the following upgrades. Shimano ST-EF40-7 7-Speed RapidFire Shifter, Shimano MF-TZ31 14-34T 7-speed freewheel, Shimano RD-TX35 7-speed derailleur, KMC Z72 chain and Kenda K841 tires for paved surfaces. Check to see if your REI bike shop would be willing to swap out these components at the time of sale for the difference in parts and labor. The retail parts price difference between stock and these upgrades is small. However, I installed these upgrades after the fact which is more expensive. The bike tools I had to get were a Shimano TL-FW30 Freewheel Remover and a Lezyne Chain Drive Chain Breaker Tool. My labor rate is ... slow. Maybe a pro could swap these components in an hour. Some other parts I added are SKS Rowdy Kid's Fenders, Mirrycle Incredibell Original Bicycle Bell, Zefal Bicycle Spy Mirror, Fuelbelt Aero Fuelbox (or a Timbuk2 Goody Box Top Tube Pack if more room is needed)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy! I just got this bike a few days ago at our local REI for my 7 year old and she's LOVING it. She learned to ride on a 12" bike and I'm ashamed to say she was still riding it despite it being very small for her. We went in to look at bikes not sure if she'd need a 16" or 20" bike (she's on the small side for 7), and then not sure if she needed gears or not if we went with the 20". Because we live in the country and not in a neighborhood and she mostly rides in the yard (grass) I'm glad I opted for this model over the single speed.. she has no trouble at all riding around in the lowest gear, which I'm not sure she'd have been able to do as easily on the single speed. So far we are very happy with the purchase and I'm confident it's a bike she will enjoy for several years to come.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great first mountain bike My daughter loves this bike! It's just the right size for her (other shops suggested a 24" bike, which would have been too big for her) and seems durable, as she's crashed it about a dozen times already.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun Ride I bought this bike for my daughter (9 years old) after she had only been riding for a few months. She took to the dirt on this bike very fast. In her words "it is really smooth on the bumps and landings" I hope to get her on more advanced trails soon, but it will be her courage that will hold us back, not the bike... This is a great bike for a lot less money than a comparable Specialized or Diamond Back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bike! My daughter loves this bike so much we can barely keep her off of it! No kidding!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for my 9 year old! My 9 year old daughter had her eye on this bike the moment we walked into a local Rei store. She's meticulous about the color and design. This seem like a great beginner bike. Seat is very easy to adjust. Great handling. 6-Speed is just perfect. Just enough for her to learn shifting without overly complicating things. She was able to learn how to ride the bike in a few hours. Now she's riding it everyday!
