Who wants Michelin to re-release the green Michelin Mud Cyclocross Tire?

The boys at Michelin seem open to the idea of re-releasing the green Michelin Mud tire and tread. Would you be psyched? Add your name here.

They probably stopped making them because of increased production costs weighed against potential sales, which is the same reason Continental stopped making their Top Touring tire (best commuting/touring tire EVER). My Conti rep (I'm the buyer for a shop) told me that if Conti re-issued that tire today they'd have to charge over $90 retail each. At that price they wouldn't sell many, so it's likely not coming back.
If Michelin re-issues the Magic Green Cross Tire it will be interesting to see how much it costs now -- and how many people would pay the higher price.
I would switch back from Tubulars to ride a set of these again.
Yes! DO IT! And while you're at it, please consider making this tread in other sizes (like, um, 26"?).
Last year I was riding the original green muds @ schooley mill when on the last lap I was pushed into thorns and flatted the front tire. I rode more than 1/2 a lap on that flat michelin mud clincher and kept my place! Will I buy more? Yes! Tubular as well please!
I'd pick up a set or two. The reviews for them were always positive.
I ran the michelin green muds at schooley mill last year in 35/45 elite masters. Dude runs me into stickers on last lap, I get front flat, bogus.

I ride michelin mud for a full 1/3 lap to finish while tire is completely flat (and keep nemesis at bay)!!!

Does it get better than that? No it does not!
I'm in. I want'em.
Well, naturally. What amazes me more is with all the design technology out there, no-one's come up with a better mud-shedder than this 'per grip'. Got some lovely treads of these on FMBs and they ooze sex.
I'm in for a set.....I'll be able to name my Soma, Pumkin after I get the green Mud2's
Why did they ever stop? I want the green road tires too! Bring them all back!
Love the tire. The green color would be a bonus.
I still have a set of the original skinwall muds that I use for 'special' occassions. I wish they would start making them again!
