Filter Segment Leaderboard by bike type

This would allow segments to be filtered to view only results by bike type, thus separating mountain bike versus road bike segments results.

  • Yes, absolutely!  I need to be able to categorize my rides as either road bike, mountain bike or trainer ride.

    Once this is available, I will most definitely sign up for premium.

  • Yes Please!  I like this platform better than Endomondo, but they have the mountain bikers covered...

  • +1 I use my MTB on the roads and cannot compete with the speed of a road bike!

  • Sure i'd vote for this. Although it isnt so clear cut as mtb or road bike. There are various stages in between. Slick tyres, 2x10 roadie setups, hybrid bikes etc. The only way for 'direct' comparison of rider ability is to use the same bike. That aint gonna happen.

  • I laughed at the fact that you can pick between Nordic, Alpine, Backcountry, and Roller skiing, but not between Mountain and Road biking.

  • This would be great.  We definately need to seperate the road bikes from the mountain bikes.

  • Lacking this essentially screws anybody riding a MTB on a paved trail. It also makes it impossible for MTB people who might have a dirt trail segement/climb that sits in close proximity to a paved climb. This should have been fixed long ago as a core item to support, to quote a Strava employee, "the competitive aspect of the leaderboards".

  • This would be great to be able to filter by bike type. It is kind of hard to see how you far against other Fixed Speed bikes in NYC. If you do add a Fixed Gear/Single speed you would have to add the ratio as well like 48 x 16 ect...

  • Would love to see this, there's two segments I regularly ride that run alongside a road and roadies are regularly tripping it (despite it wandering over 10m from it at some points).

  • one more !!!

    Could you create a divide the cycling ride in two categories: mountain bike and road ride ?
    Thanks

  • + !

    i think it's mandatory for a mainly bicycle orientated website to support more than just 1 bicycle type!! (as P. Costa Leal already said, i'm also always surprised that you have like 10 different things for hiking and so on, but not the main sports supported!)

  • I agree.... I in fact I would like to be able to explore segments by type. I ride a mtb and when explore I have to wade through road rides to get to the dirt trails.  I would be nice to just select "Mtn" or "Road" as segment type and then futher be able to compare times of MTB bikers on road segments.   Yes some bikes can blur the lines between Mtn and road, but alot of this on the honor system anyway.  You can always figure a way to cheat or game the system, but then you are only fooling yourself.

  • Yes please - would be great to split the type of cycling.

  • I also find it very difficult to create a new segment for a mountain bike ride.  The problem is the inability to zoom in on the map close enough to figure out where to place the start and finish points.

    This makes it very difficult to decide where the beginning of a climb begins or where the top of the hill is.  Most mountain bike sections don't start at a cross-road that is easy to determine.  Alternatively, if I"m in the woods, it's very hard to know where the beginning or end of a section is.  These issues would be helped if the maps were more mountain bike friendly or at least we could zoom in closer to determine the geography of the nearby land, ie, the top of  hill, etc.

  • Yes to filtering by bike types. Come on Strava. Get with it. We use your platform to compare our own results against our fellow athletes. So let's compare appropriately by type of bike which reflects a popular activity.

    We should at least be able to differtiate by major bike types that are sold on the market, ie: XC, single speed XC, trail, Enduro, downhill  and fat biking for MTB, Road and cyclocross and single speed track are also specific categories or

    subcategories of classic drop bar style racing bikes and all of the above have races specific to those types of riding. Electric assist bikes need their own category too, along with commuter/ hybrid bikes since they represent a significant proportion of cyclists. Even the cargo bikes, tandems and unicyclists seem to want recognition. No doubt the list could become extensive but it will provide a more realistic representative of what riders are really doing.

  • You can also use the LAP feature on your Garmin.   Mark a Lap point at the start of the segment, then mark it again at the end.  You can create a new segment from a Lap

  • @Grumpy flumps, it clearly evident you haven't grasped what we are asking for. Its not about mountain bikers filtering out a commuter on an off road track etc. It's more about a commuter like yourself filtering out the mountain bikers from an off road track so you could compare your results to others that used a commuter bike aswell.

  • @ Grumpy, YES correct but not only to compare against other mtb-er as I can already compare myself against the full leaderboard, my age group and weight if I want. The recent  IMBA's Take It to the Trails Challenge http://www.strava.com/challenges/imba-take-it-to-the-trails is a typical example of where a bike filter is beneficial. I managed 17th climbing 15,800m all on gravel and dirt apart from 61m in the 9 day challenge.  Would be great if I could filter out the ones using their road bikes on paved roads for the challenge. On my mtb riding on gravel and dirt if I compare myself to someone the same fitness level riding the Challenge on a paved roads and road bike they will require less time and effect to achieve the same result.     

    Also a bike filter is required using the Explore. Especially for a roadie planning a ride as how is he/she using the Explore going to know if the segment/activity they are looking at is on a paved, unpaved or single track? 

    P.S how do you know you haven't already been been beat by a mtb on your commuter route without the filter :)

  • Hello, use a tool (bicycle) suitable for making a KOM is not possible for everyone. Not everyone can buy a bike of 12,000 euro. Not everyone can buy two bikes. So it's more just to know which type of bike was made that performance (segment).
    I would propose to make clear the type of bike related to the athlete who has achieved the performance (segment), maybe also applying a complex filter (for example, also on bike weight). Better still associate the KOM athletes MTB and the KOS (King of Street) to BDC athletes.
    Thanks..

  • Should be great to have in the personal results, the possibility to show and/or filter the results by bike.
    I ride usually with two bikes and should be great if i can see witch one is faster in different situations.

  • I love the local guys on tri-bikes but it totally muddies up any ability to know where you stand athletically and in your fitness.   Please include a sub-category for tri-bikes (as well as the others such as velomobiles) so we can really know where we stand in segments, which is what inspires us to strive - what Strava is all about, right? Thanks.

  • Such an old request still not implemented!

    I do the same routes with road and fixie, and with my road im usually faster. Even faster when using aerobars. Thats not even fair with myself!!

    Also, another day I asked about someones KOM (3:30 mins at 60km/h in the flat) he said "I was drafting behind a truck", so maybe even an "assisted trial" should be considered....

     

    My biggest point: While theres no bike type leaderboards, im not paying for premium. Do you want my money? Update this!

  • Well, we'll soon need an electric bike filter..., as the'll soon be topping every leader board.

  • yes, tracking ride performance by bike type and as many types of bikes that you have not just category's and having PR's grouped by a particular bike as well.
