Cut in Tire... :-( Any good solution to repair??rwebb

I have a new tire with only 20 miles or so on it and just discovered a small cut of about 1/4 inch. Is there any way to repair this?

Go to shop and buy velox cloth rim strip and 3m fastack at hardware store. Glue cloth rim tape or small piece of old tire over hole on the inside.

I've noticed Shoo goo shoe repair stuff works well too. Available at big sporting goods stores

Superglue. Take the tire off the bike. Cover both sides of the split with glue. Close/compress the split by flattening out the tire width-wise. Usually, you can just set something heavy on the tire to hold it flat. It will never resplit.
