    I've had good luck with Panda bear fur.

    I've heard of people melting the tube with a flame but I have no personal experience with this.

    tape don't work, it just makes the tube into funny shapes. Something flamable and on the area will do the trick.

    except a whole lot of rotational weight.

    I've had decent luck with small pieces of old tubes, cleaned very well, applied with rubber cement. But I've only used these until I can get to the shop and do a decent patch job...and now I've got tons of stuff at home, so hopefully I'll never have to do this again.
