    Try Papagayo Bikes in Playa Blanca.

    I hired a road bike earlier this year from their Coasta Teguise branch and it was an excellent bike and I had no issues with the service via my initial emails and the personal contact and advise on routes while I was there.

    Try Renner bike down near where the ferries come in.

    Ignore the link name, I've hired road bikes from them twice, both times were well maintained Treks iirc, complete with lock, saddle bag with tool kit and water bottle.

    I'd take your own pedals if you run clipless.

    Hire rates are reasonable but if you only want to hire for 1 day then hire on Saturday, they are closed on Sun so you return it on Monday morning so get 2 days riding and only pay 1 days hire ;)
