But with heat dissipation now relegated to brake discs (rather than rim brake tracks), are there any downsides/risks to running latex on modern disc brake carbon wheels?
I LOVE tubeless for training (and haven't gotten a single flat in 1000s of miles on GP5Ks), they do present a few challenges for racing (once we're racing again).
1) They're SO hard to mount/seat I'm 100% certain that I wouldn't be able to get a tube in my ENVEs. So if my bacon strip fails (and given my lack of flats, I don't have much experience/confidence in them), I'm toast. My day would be over.
2) It makes changing to a fresh set of race tires race week a huge PITA, borderline impossible really.
3) The bike I'm looking at buying (Shiv Disc) comes with Roval Rapide CLX wheels, which are not tubeless compatible but otherwise look awesome.
