For those who ride rim brake in hilly/mountain aeras, latex is not a choice, no?
I do it. I run latex in both my rim bike and my disc bike.

Hasn't been an issue on the rim bike. I know that's very anecdotal but after awhile I just got tired of listening to the message board forum mythology and folklore and tried it myself and its been fine. My rim bike uses LB hoops with the grooved graphene brake track.

I'm sure a lot of it will come down to braking habits/technique.

Me too. I live in Salt Lake City and ride the canyons around here with latex and carbon rims.
