Bike shop in the FL Keys

I am headed to the Keys in Oct. and am in search of a bike shop that rents bikes equipped with either a rack (so I can use a couple of my panniers) or baskets. The bike will be the primary form of transport once I get situated at the hotel.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Here's a list I found in one of my many favorite Key West web sites. We spend some time down there every year. All of the rentals I know of are going to be touristy cruiser type bikes. I've never seen a "real" LBS type bike shop in the Keys. And most bikes you see are either cruiser rentals to the tourists or old MTBs with all sorts of racks, bags and trailers that the locals put together to commute (or in some cases live out of).
