I really like the Michelin sprints (CX and MTB), but can no longer take that green. I work hard at building a bike I think is very beautiful only to have everybody say, "nice wheels". They, of course mean tires. Any body have a good replacement in, say black?

They must be roadies converted. No true cxer would make fun of how a bike 'looked'. Most the guys I race with are on either Ugly green Mich's, Ugly Yellow or Ugly flat red Tufos. Next time they comment on your wheels just give them a good view as you pass them. I love my Green Tires and I have them on a red bike

Check out these Schwalbe Silentos under "bargains" here:-

They are slightly on the weighty side, if that bothers you, but I have been using them from training and commuting and have been really impressed with them - very tough.

They also do a more treaded one which I use on the rear - I forget the name, but you'd know it if you saw one.

They are good value too.
