Duplicate Cycling Segments for Ebike Segments

Hi,

a lot of people with ebike are still registering their activities as nomral bike because no segments exists in the ebike section.

Most of them do that because they don't know (or they don't want to spend the time) to create new segment in Ebike categorie.

I think it will be awesome if all the bikes segments could be duplicate in eBikes categories.

This way, the ebikes owner are gona record their activities in the ebike section because they will be able to see the existing segments.

Of course, keep the leaderboard seperate, just duplicate the segments.

 

Thanks.

  • I'm sick of discussing it now. Strava have effectively said "e-bikes, p**s off, we're not bothered".

    It's pretty simple (or so you'd think!!!), copy the segments from "ride" to "ebike".

    They cant understand how the 2 things are the same people riding the same trails and wanting to continue riding the segments they've ridden for years. Its pissing off ebike riders, its pissing off non ebike riders.

    I've argued via email with them and now given up..... NY solution is this.... I now record every ride as a "ride"... if someone flags it they flag it. I've lost faith completely and strava's inflexibility is churlish. I'm a paying customer, but that's stopping tomorrow..

  • I´m using Nick´s fix with good success, the only thing is that I have about 100 segments between my 2 MTB parks, so it´s going to take a while to upload all the segments due to the Strava limitation of how many segments you can create

  • Paul, how about just making your own e-bike segments rather than causing problems for the rest of us? Your issue is with Strava, don't punish the rest of us.

  • Hi Jason... I've spent many years creating segments, riding hundreds of other segments and have years worth of data. Strava have washed their hands of Ebikers asking simply to be able to continue riding the same segments they have done for years. It cant be hard to copy the segment data points and implant it to "E-bike"..... easy I'd say. But 'Strava' (a representative told ne directly) identify ebikes as a new thing.... in the same 'new thing' way they see running, swimming etc as new disciplines. If it annoys you that some ebikers record as a ride (and it should annoy you), complain to starve and ask them to do something about it.... PLEASE!!!!!
    as an aside, I've cancelled my subscription, and will be just using garmin from now on

  • So agree with you Paul. Many of my ebike rides I now just record as normal rides. I want to see and record the same segments i’ve ridden for years now.

  • Tired of eRides issues, I converted all my eActivities to standard rides. As a consequence, I am now the KOM in some in heavy ramps, apologies to the rightful owners... I will change those rides to not visible, I do not want to cheat on KOMs

  • Strava, are you counting votes on this? The issue will only grow as ebikes proliferate. Look at the sales in Austria and Switzerland. It's only a matter of time, so why not lead? 

    I agree, there needs to be a way to separate e-bikes from regular bikes on the same segments. If I ride both, I don't want my e-bike results overriding my best regular bike efforts, but I do want to record them. There must be a way to have a checkbox to click if e-bike in the gear profile, then the data is handled separately. You can differentiate running and biking on the same segments, right? Just duplicate that functionality.

    Thanks.

  • Hi Roberto, hmm the script still seems to be working for me - can you open the browser console (it's Ctrl-Shift-I on Chrome) and see if there are any error messages associated with userscript.html?

  • Fritz - Actually, no, running and biking is just like biking and e-biking.  Running and biking are not using the same segments.  It is probably just that people have created running segments that mirror the biking ones, just like people can create e-bike segments that mirror biking ones if they want.  Personally, I would love to be an e-biker and be able to just about start from scratch in making my segments.  There are far too many people who have screwed up the regular bike segments by either creating multiple duplicates or using bad start/stop locations so it doesn't record accurately.  If you just duplicated the existing regular bike segments to e-bike, then the e-bikers would have to deal with all of the screwed up segments as well.

  • I opened the browser console and I couldn't see anything... It's something with this computer, it runs well on another one.

    Thanks

  • For anyone who's been using my script, it unfortunately stopped working about a month ago once Strava updated their webpage. I think/hope I've fixed it now - if you go to Tampermonkey and click on "Check for userscript updates" it should update it automatically. To make sure, go to installed userscripts and make sure it's at least version 0.5.2. Let me know how it goes - I'm not actually much of a javascript programmer so I'm sure there are still bugs!

    Oh and Mark sorry I missed your message - it'll copy ANY regular bike segments that have been made along the ride that you've done, and make them into ebike segments using your Strava account. I'm regretting making this script now, someone with a souped up illegal (in Aus) ebike has been taking all the segments I've created lol :P

  • tried Nick's script for the first time today - installed Tampermonkey, got the buttons when looking at my e-bike rides. However, when I click a button, the ride changes from e-bike to normal ride, and then the process seems to stop, with Strava saying underneath the map "No Segments On This Activity". If I then refresh the browser, lots of segments appear (and the activity type is still 'normal' ride). Am I missing something, or is the process supposed to work from start to finish automatically (including setting the activity type back to e-bike) without user intervention?

    thanks

  • Hi Nick. Thanks for creating that script - it has proved really useful to help me duplicate (and curate) a bunch of segments in my local MTB area. However, I've been having a little difficulty of late. It says that I have updated in Tampermonkey, but the version is showing as 0.5.1. Also in the script listed as 0.5.2 on Github, it is still showing version 0.5.1 at line 4. 

    Anyway, one of the problems I've encountered is similar to Graham above, when it changes to "Ride", the browser initially comes up with no segments, but if I manually refresh the "Ride" page, all the ride segments appear. It would be great if the script could include an extra refresh in here to help pick up the full list of "Ride" segments before changing back to "E-bike Ride".
