    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.

    Designed to let you stop and put your feet on the ground without getting off the saddle, our Novara Jaunt XX women's bike offers pure comfort for quick errands or casual rides with friends.

    • Our "Best Foot Forward" design places the pedals and crank slightly forward and lowers the angle of the seat tube so you can put your feet on the ground while still sitting
    • Best Foot Forward design also lets you easily pedal without compromising efficiency; step-through frame makes mounting and dismounting a breeze
    • Relaxed design lets you sit fully upright so you can look around, steer and pedal comfortably
    • 24 gears means tackling varying terrain is an easy-spinning endeavor; subtle chainring guard helps protect clothing from getting caught in drivetrain
    • Easy-to-use twist shifters let you keep your hands on the bar in a comfortable and secure position while shifting: it takes just a twist of the wrist to change gears
    • 26 in. wheels and wide tires offer excellent stability
    • Tektro linear-pull brakes provide excellent speed control and reliable stopping power
    • Swept-back handlebar and Velo saddle add style and comfort
    • Novara Jaunt XX also has a kickstand for convenient parking and storing; eyelets accept a rear rack and front and back fenders (not included)
    • Specs on our Novara Jaunt XX women's bike are subject to change

    All bicycles sold at REI include a free warranty tune-up. New bikes go through a normal break-in period, after which readjustment is important for longevity and performance. Bring your new bike in to your local REI for its free tune-up within 20 hours of use or 6 months from purchase, whichever comes first. Contact your nearest REI bike shop to schedule this important service.

    Novara Jaunt XX Women's Bike - 2014is rated4.0out of5by1.
    Rated4out of5byfromHappy wife = happy lifeBought the 2012 version of this bike for my wife. She has been using this bike to commute to work almost everyday for the last 2 years through rain, shine and polar vortices. I don't ride this bike, but I'm in charge of maintenance and so far it's been a solid performer. Although I'm more of a Shimano guy, so far we've had no issues with the "Schram" components and this bike has only had a single flat tire during this time. The only other incident was one time when my wife got doored by a careless driver. Luckily nothing broke (on my wife or the bike), but the handlebars bent down and brake cables snapped off. Although I could have fixed it myself, the bike was under warranty and we had a free tune-up, so REI took care of everything at no cost. Main difference with the current model is the paint job and I'm not sure this is an upgrade. My wife is the no-nonsense, get-things-done kind woman who wears pants suits to work every day (so, I wouldn't say she is girlie); but I know she likes the pastel color of her bike a lot. On the down side, the white seat on our bike gets dirty easily and the paint also seems to scratch easily with the u-lock and cable. Maybe that's why they changed the colors, but I doubt it since it seems these are problems evident only to the guy cleaning the bike, checking the tire pressure and lubing the chain regularly (me). The only component of the bike that has been giving me problems is the kickstand. It seems to bend every 2 weeks just with the weight of the bike and then it's unable to support it. I bend it back into place by hand, but I know one day it will just break. This bike has features like the "best foot forward" geometry and a chromoly fork that are supposed to make this bike more comfortable. I can't attest to whether these work or not since I really don't ride the bike, but I know that because of these things the other "problem" that I find with this bike is that it is very difficult to fit accessories to it. This bike has eyelets for fenders and racks, but you will need additional spacers, brackets and supports in order to fit things properly. I also found that often these additional parts are hard to find. I recognize I'm not the most proficient bike mechanic, but I have other bikes that I work on with no issues. So I've learned the hard way that when fitting something to this bike it's better to just buy the cheapest stuff and jerry-rig it or zip-tie it to make it fit. Generally speaking we are very satisfied with this bike and REI's service.
