    My 2 yr olds bicycle tire tube split and its not repairable. The bicycle was purchased at wallyworld a few years ago but they no longer carry tubes that small.

    Its kind of hard to find a 10 inch tube on the web thats not for a scooter.

    Where can i find a 10 inch bicycle tire tube for a kids bike? I tried a bicycle shop in lawrence and they only had tubes for larger bicycles. The smallest they had was a 12 inch tube, same as walmart.

    a few searches on google for 10 inch bicycle tube or 10" bicycle tube or childrens bicycle tire tube yielded a bunch of junk results.

    the split is a good 3 inches long--it wont hold air.. also checked ebay, called around to a few more bike places..

    i think its a lost cause. :(



    Maybe i can put daytons on it and drop it a bit? :)

    My walmart doesnt carry them. Its a supercenter also. I've checked in Topeka, Lawrence, and Emporia. Wanna go buy me a couple and send them to me? I'll pay for shipping and packing and all.

    Thanks

    I used to get small tubes at KMart. You could also try Target.
