Try ShoeGoo...

I've never had much luck with Super Glue either. It usually hardens up like little rocks and becomes harder than the tire's rubber construction and gets pulled out. I use ShoeGoo to patch small nicks and cuts. You have to apply it just a little thicker than you need and it wears down after time. Too thick and it peels off. 1K is about the average life when I start getting nicks and cuts. Once I went around the entire tire tread with ShoeGoo and stopped and thought that it was ridiculious and I just junked the tire and slapped on a new one...ShoGoo is used for patching up the worn soles of running shoes, come in tubes, can be found in most sporting good stores. My tube is going on 2 years old and I've used very little of it, it goes a long way..too bad the bicycling industry can't come out with something that was designed primarily for bicycle tires......
