Glueing Rubber Answered

I'm trying to make a long inflatable rubber tube buy cutting a bike inner tube and then resealing the ends. I'm doing a bit of a trial run with all the suitable materials I have knocking about but I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions. I need it so I can inflate the tube with little or no leakage (not to any great pressure) and I would like it to remain at least semi flexible so that means I cant just pack the last 2 inches with hot glue. Any suggestions? I plan to try poly-cement, epoxy, hot glue, super glue and melting the ends together but I'm sure someone has had some experience at this.
