Road bike rental - Chicago area

I'll be visiting Chicago next month and I'd like to rent a road bike for a day or two. Can anyone recommend a LBS that rents decent road bikes in Chicago/Lincoln Square area?

Thanks!

I live near Lincoln Square and none of the bike shops near here rent bikes. Try: http://kozy.com/sitesearch.cfm?searc...SiteSearch.y=5

Also try: http://bicycle-rental.regionaldirectory.us/illinois.htm

When are you coming? I'll meet you and take you along some bike friendly routes.

Thanks for the reply! The only place i found that rents bicycles at a decent price is near the lakefront, so i'll have to check it out.
I'll be there next week.
