    Renting a "real" bike on Cape Cod

    I will be on Cape Cod in a couple of weeks. While I am there, I want to sample the local MTB trails( Otis, ToT etc.). Is there a good bike shop where I can rent a real MTB?
    Also what kind of MTB is best for the Cape? A 4" or a 6" bike? I will be staying in the Brewster area,but am willing to drive a bit to get a good bike.
    Thanks for the help.

    4" or hardtail.

    try a specialized demo at bikezone. cornercycle does 'performance' road bike rentals.
    Only boring people get bored.

    Hardtail or 4" is good to know.
    The trails in my neck of the woods require a 4"-6" bike. Depending on the trail, I will ride my Superlite or my Heckler,but mostly the Heckler.
    I had been told there was a lot of rocks on the North East trails.Is there some freeride trails on the Cape? Do I need to bring my knee pads?
    Thanks for the info.

    I'm not looking for anything big,just fun TTF's. Otis sounds like the place to ride. I will only have an hour or three on two days that I will be able to ride. But I can't fly all the way from Washington state and not check out some local trails.
    Thanks again for the help.
