I used pvc rubber hose clamps from Home Depot. 1.99 each and have built in hose clamps.

NAPA Auto Parts sells it by the yard in a variety of diameters. I think it only comes in black though.

thanks<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial[/img]It's the "hump hose" couplings that are in the $20 range. I think their advantage over straight couplings (such as what you'd get from cutting your own from bulk lengths) is that they withstand flex better. Straight couplings are in the $5 range (depending on diameter). XS Engineering has a bunch of different sizes, styles, and colors listed on their website. I'm not necessarily recommending them, they're just the only place I can think of that has 'em.
