I'm looking for "classic" CX clincher tires, with brown sidewalls. Preferably 32 or 35 mm. Can't find them anywere. Any ideas?

I'm pretty sure these have brown/tan sidewalls.

www.ritcheylogic.com

Ritchey Speedmax Cross

• Aggressive VFA knobs with low rolling resistance center section
• All-around tread design rolls fast and sheds mud
• Pro and Comp versions
• 700x30, 700x32 and 700x35

Thanks, but as far as I know they only come all black.

try to find the oldest michelin cyclo cross tires(mud and sprint). they had brown sidewalls. maybe the lime green rest of the tire won't look classic enough for you.
the new michelins come all black, will look more classic than the all green versions that were sold after the green-brown ones.
there is a schwalbe cyclocross tire with dark brown sidewalls, but the tire sucks hard if it's muddy.
i once had a ritchey cross tire(could have been alphabite ore something, about 1995), with brown sidewalls, and also a specialized tire, but they are not made anymore as fas as i know.
to get the best look and more important the best ride feeling, get tubulars(dugast, gommitalia, challenge, etc.)!

I don't know about the Ritchey's being all black. I got one last year that had brown sidewalls.

Can somebody here comment on these Vredensteins?

They look quite interesting.
