I installed one in the back tire a couple weeks ago and can't make up my mind about it. It seems to kind of numb the bike in a strange way. It's noticeable from the very first pedal stroke. It absolutely gives more traction and comfort, no doubt about it. But it gives the bike an odd soft squishy feel. It makes the bike feel more sluggish to me. I tried putting in a much lighter and faster rolling tire and the feeling is still there. So it's not the weight of the insert I'm feeling. Did you experience this? Did you eventually just get used to it? BTW,  thanks for the tip to crosshatch an E13 valve to make it work!
