Wow, it’s awesome that you got permission to detect. I’m not sure I would have called the dentist’s office either, but obviously it worked for you…so who knows what I’d do now, in a similar situation.

I'm trying to continue PT exercises and strengthen my back. A large part of why I started detecting is because I stopped biking as much.
Well, you should give up that whole Road Bike thing anyway…way too dangerous…and come join us on the Dark Side!! Mountain bikes, baby, that’s where it’s at!! I can relate to the back issues though. Stupid actions in my youth have led to a loss of the disk between L5 and S1, and the loss of most of the disk between L4 and L5. Oddly, riding a bike doesn’t bother me at all, and I’ve done some long races…including a 237 mile race in the U.P. of Michigan that took 27 hours. It was a blast. So stop that skinny tire stuff, and go grab yourself a mtn bike instead.
