bike rental companies in the Moselle Valley

I am planning a biking trip in the Moselle Valley beginning in Thionville, France and ending in Koblenz, Germany. Do you have any recommendations of rental companies? We will need bikes, helmets, bike rack, etc.
Thank you,

Not knowing specifics, take a look at this website: http://www.mybikeguide.co.uk/Mosel_Bike_Hire.php
By wanting a bike rack, I assume you are planning on renting a car. Just to let you know, you can take your bikes on the trains that run up and down the Mosel valley. There is also a bus service called the Regio-Radler that has a bike trailer with regular scheduled service throughout the valley. So a car maybe unnecessary. http://www.regioradler.de/index.php?pre=en_&haktiv=10&code=
I think a good plan would be to rent a bike in Koblenz, then take the train to Thionville. There are trains connecting to Thionville from Koblenze at 10:06, 1:06 pm, 4:06 pm. The initial leg is a Regional Express to Luxembourg you can carry your bike on free. It connects to a TGV to Thionville where you will need a bike reservation. You could then start your trip down river. When you get to Koblenz, turn in the bike and you are ready to move on.

PS: it’s a very nice place to stay too.
