Got a line on tubes?

I'm kitting the bike out for the upcoming Death Valley Noob run and keep hitting a brick wall on tubes, nobody seems to have heavy duty 17" tubes in stock. Would anybody here happen to know of line that may help me out on tubes?

I'm specifically looking for 4.00/5.10x17 and 2.75/3x21, they will have a 130/90-17 and 90/90-21 wrapped around them respectively.


EDIT - Just found CycleGear has "Double Tough" tubes. Unless these are crap it looks like I have a weiner.
2005 KLR 650 A bit beat up but works just fine. Powered by really angry canaries. - Actually it's a bit dead right now.
1990 DR350S Smaller. Lighter. Slower.
1985 Suzuki GS700E Some assembly required
1977 Cimatti City Bike. What, you call that a build thread? Officially stalled...

I just bought a front tube from Cycle Gear. It's made by MSR and is extra heavy duty. The size is 100/80x21. The chart they had showed it fitting 21" tires from 2.75 up to 3.25. It fit well on my 3.00x21". It cost me $45!

I suppose I could get it elsewhere cheaper but I was in a hurry to make progress on my bike. As far as the 17" goes, I didn't need one so I didn't check.
