I had hoped these tubes would be adequate for riding primarily on the street and through the occasional thorn-laden dirt patch. I knew they would be heavier than a standard tube, but I also expected that they would be firm and usable. Unfortunately, it was like riding on flat tires, including an unpleasant squishy noise as I pedaled along. On the plus side, I got an excellent workout from a very short ride, as they probably doubled the amount of energy I might have normally expended.
I think that my experience with this product might differ greatly from that of someone needing a smaller tube for a smaller rider. I would definitely not recommend them for adults.
The "sandy" feeling described by some is noticeable but you get used to it. Kinda like the first time you get a bike with a rear shock. The bouncy motion throws you at first. I think this is caused by the Inserts smaller size than a properly inflated innertube. Necessary to get it able to be installed by hand.
In the long run, it might be more work to check the spokes a few times a week, but it will prevent you from getting stuck with a flat. I have been experimenting with leaving the standard innertube installed between the insert and rim and inflating it some to lessen the risk to spoke loosening and firming up the ride. This year I was planning on another version of this experiment using fix a flat in the tube instead of air.
If I hit a "magic spot" in my experiments I will post it.
CON: *Added resistance *added weight *because there is no "valve" to add air the tire can FREE-SPIN meaning you pedal and the tire rubs against this inner-tube instead of the tire rubbing the ground to propel you forwards! very dangerous in urban setting around cars/traffic.
I am 21, i weigh about 195-205 depending on the week and riding on this tire (just the back was replaced with this tube) was comparable to riding in a mixture of syrup and beach-sand. I returned the item as i did not get out of my driveway with it, got my refund and i am happy i hope this helped someone.

first off this does work but it is a heavy innertube and makes your bike riding experience so exhausting because you have to pedal twice as much since its heavier.Published on September 24, 2012 by oscar
Literally one of the worst products I've ever used. Purchased the 26" 1.75-1.95 size from Wal-Mart (only $20, too) for the back tire of my Raleigh, which has 26"x1.75 rims on it. Read morePublished on September 9, 2012 by Matt
