I also use Latex Vittoria tubes on my Shamal Clinches for few two years, on hot weather, cold weather, any weather and in any condition, and problems until now. (Using Continental 4000 SII, GP 4Season, Vittoria Corsa G+, Attack/Force tires...)
The only problem i had with latex tubes was if i was in hurry in installation process and if not using talcum.. when im carefull installing + talcum no problems..
I have Tubulars and the positive thing with Tubulars are more comfortable, some how better keep the speed and a bit ligher for climbing.. Also seem like more stable on downhills but maybe im just imagine that..
