We used to fix automotive tubeless tires in this manner also. Whatever manner you use to repair the tire has to be non abrasive to the tube AND when you inflate the tire to full pressure (especially high pressure tires <100psi) make sure your repair doesn't cause the tire to appear to rupture or have a "goose egg" on the outside. I normally carry a spare tire on longer tours. (figure 8 and attach to lowriders with cable ties.
