Just got back from Key West. Had a great time. You're right -- 3 gears would have been plenty, I just wanted a bike geometry more like the hybrid I ride at home.
A Recommendation: Managed to find a very good bike repair shop on the island called "Fixed Gears", at the corner of Simonton and Fleming. They don't rent bikes, but they do fix them well and quickly. (Rented a pair of hybrids from one of the many places down there; my husband went into cleat withdrawal; the guy at Fixed Gears basically let us rent clipless pedals for a few days, and put them on/took them off for us.) I hear tell they're also looking at doing custom builds. If you're nearby, check 'em out!
