Tires resistant to sidewall cuts

Since I began cycling last year (less than 3000km) I've got two sidewall cuts. I am supposed to replace the tire every time and it gets expensive quickly. Is my Conti grand sport tire particularly...

Can I patch these cuts on the tire?

I got these cuts on my front tire last night (Conti grand sport race 23c clincher). There were two cuts, one on the side wall in the middle, exposing the threads, and the longer one on the right. The...

How to drink while cycling

I am a total noob regarding controlling a bike. The water bottle is in the cage on the downtube. I just can't figure out how to control the bike with one hand, and use the free hand to pick up the...

Just an idea. I put 1.75 semi slick at the rear and 1.95 knobby in front (both cheap CST 60 tpi tires).

Thanks a lot. I am in China, so I am not sure about the shipping cost, or how to arrange payment. To compare the 4500 above costs 30 USD, a single Sora left brifter is even slightly cheaper. I guess...
