I seem to be in the vast minority here. With so many good cx tire choices I don't see the need to bring back the original greenies. The PDX seems to have this catatgory in the spades, and I just tried out Conti Speed Kings that I really like. Under my 185 lb. butt I can run these about 26 lbs and do pretty well - I've had them down to 21 lbs when there's no rocks or roots. The Maxxis Raze almost has this nailed, but if they'd have better/more side knobs it'd be a great tire. What about the lastest Schwalbe? That's gotten pretty dang good reviews.
Hell, while we're at it, let's reissue the Vredestein Campos, too. I really liked those tires and thing they'd give the Grifos a run for the money in the general all-purpose catagory.
For you green michelin mud fans.....keep an eye out on www.cxmagazine.com. A pair of very gently used muds fell into the hands of Cyclocross Magazine. CX mag has partnered with Bikereg.com to raffle these tires off. All proceeds will go to support Bjorn Fox's travel to the CX world championships.
Check back with CX mag on Sunday the 23rd!
