TT Bike Rental - Around Destin-FL Area

Hi All,
Anyone aware of a TT bike rental around Destin, Florida area? Found a ton of rental options but none with a TT option advertised on their lists.

Thank you in advance,
WN.

I may be wrong, but I think you'll be hard-pressed to find a 'rental' TT specific bike anywhere. I know I've never heard of a LBS offering TT bikes for rent. For a bike shop to dedicate the cost of the bike to such a specific 'niche' clientele would be a loss. Unless, of course, they made the rental fees exorbitantly high.

Thanks for the input. Living in a large city I am lucky to have a bike shop chain that carries a couple on one of their locations and move them across as per demand. Fairly used Trek Speed Concept but fair price.
All research I did aligns with your perspective, but with so many bike rentals for tourists in that area I'd expect maybe one could carry it. Thanks again.

Personally, I'm going to Florida in February and I live in NH/Mass. My plan is that I'll bring my saddle and get fit to a bike a couple days before my race (an Oly), ride it a couple time,s and not plan on placing. I only ride vintage Japanese bikes, so there's no way I'll find a bike to race on that fits what I normally ride.
