Rentals near DFW

I will be in the DFW area for about a month and would like to rent a road bicycle on weekends. Does anyone know of a good shop that rents in the area?

The closest bike shop to where you're staying is Bicycles Plus (Coppell) http://www.bicyclesplustx.com/ but I'm not sure if they rent bikes.

Richardson Bike Mart is about the biggest bike shop in the area and they have a huge selection of rental bikes http://bikemart.com/ Unfortunately, they're about 20 miles from where you're staying, which is either three bus transfers or a big cab fare.

Hey guys, Thanks for the replys but I just found out the training I was coming down for has been delayed 2 weeks and moved to Montreal. The upside is that I can drive my own vehicle and easily take my bike, the bad news- Quebec winter. Thanks again for the replys.

I live 2 miles from that Irving bike shop (and didn't know it was there!). Let me know if you have any questions about roads or whatever when you get here.

I work a block from the Marriot on Freeport parkway, if any of y'all come down
send me a PM, we can fire up a meet n' greet with the tejas crowd.
