Put 1" cut in the sidewall of my front tire(mnt bike). Is it possible to repair it or would it just be best to replace the tire.It is a fairly new tire.

I would replace a tire with a one-inch cut. You can make an emergency repair by reinforcing the cut area so the tube doesn't bulge out--a dollar bill wrapped around the tube is the classic road repair--but I wouldn't trust a cut that big in the long term. Especially with rugged mountain-bike use.
