Santa Fe bike rentals?

I'll be in Santa Fe in September for a 3 day conference. I'm considering packing up my bike but don't know if it's worth the hassle if it's possible to rent a road bike there.

Does anybody know if any LBS in Santa Fe can rent me a bike for a few days? Thanks.

Thanks, IWH!

Wife and I are planning to be in the area the first and second week of Octover 2007 -- doing some hiking on the Pecos Wilderness Trail. We finish that 10/6 and want to ride our road bikes, but might consider renting, rather than lugging all the way from South Carolina.

Haven't been able to find anything on the Web about road rides (maps, etc., for doing that ourselves, not in a group or guided tour) on the High Road to Taos or in the Angelfire area.

Can you suggest any source for this information, before we get there?

Thanks

I was in Santa Fe recently and saw several roadies on Cerrillos Road, but not until we got a good 2-3 miles south of the city. Looked like a nice loop to take, one lane each way with a decent shoulder and low traffic. In town, Cerrillos is the main commercial drag and looks unpleasant to do on a bike.

Turned out that I didn't take my bike, which was just as well since I didn't have much down time. I did manage to go for a nice 6 mile run from the main square to St. John's College and back. That altitude is a killer for a lowlander like me!

I did find a nice looking roadie shop--NM Bike 'n' Sport. And bought a shop jersey as a souvenir for my self. (My wife and daughter got silver bling, of course)

I'd love to return sometime and try to slug it up those roads, but I'd probably have to spend a month sleeping in an altitude tent first.
