source for tubes 24 x 3.45

I work for a couple of charities and a bike that was recently donated came in has 24 x3.45 tires.

One has a blown tube (right at the valve so repair try is fruitless).

I am trying to find a reasonable priced tube so I can get this bike back on the road.

LBS did not stock and said he had no source for this... Largest he could offer was 24 x 3.0

Bike is otherwise in decent shape and actually looks good.

Any help in locating one tube would be helpful. searches on internet have yielded crazy prices

Maybe I should just junk the bike and scrap the other parts off it.

24x3 would fit that perfectly fine.

Electra sells cruisers with that size, ergo, any bike shop that sold Trek could order them for you. "Crazy prices" is somewhat subjective for a low demand item...what was the price?

(QBP sells something that should work, too. just FYI).

Thanks Guys..... I appreciate the help

When first searched online the prices were $12-20 each.

Yes I agree low demand seemed to drive it as my more common (90%) of my rebuilds are for 26 x 1.75-2.125 and I get those for <$3 ea buying them by the dozens.

I did find an ebay dealer that had them for $5.98 ea shipped so I bought 2.
