un-retiring components

Hi Team

Love the product but it is really annoying when I swap out wheel sets on my ride and I can't keep track of the kms done on them because I have to add a new component which is the same as the retired one. Any chance of adding a little button that allows us to do this easily?

Cheers

  • Agreed. I think it would be really useful to allow the 'pausing' of a component. Currently you can 'retire' or 'delete' which does not cover the possibility of changing a component for example, seasonally. I propose the addition of 'pause' and 'resume'.  The idea being for example to have  a winter tyre which was taken off, and  'paused' for summer without clocking up distance. It could then be 'resumed' at a future date and begin clocking up its distance again.

  • Yes that would be great in order to keep track on miles put on different sets of wheels and tires.

  • One of the main reasons I use strava is for tracking wear and tear on my gear.

    I agree. I swap parts such as the crank that is rare.

    But I swap wheels and tires on my cross bike all the time, road wheel, dirt wheel, trainer tire.

    My solution is to have two bikes.  Then to find the miles on the chain I add the miles on each wheel set from the two bikes.  Kind of a pain. 

    Pausing might make for an interesting SQL queries,

    Thanks

  • Definitely need the ability to un-retire components and/or swap between bikes while retaining the mileage on the component.

    Or at least ability to add a new component with a pre-set mileage.

    I often swap bits about. Tyres & wheels especially, and other components when I replace something on one bike and swap the older part to another.

    An extra bonus though not that essential, is ability to add mileage to a bike and components without having tracked it on Strava. A reason being if you've lent the bike to someone else. I don't want to add their ride to my profile but would be nice to keep track of the extra miles wear on the bike.

  • Yep definately being able to keep track of components would be a great feature.  I would even become a premium paid user for features like this.

    I also agree with Tim on the ability to add milage/kilometers to a bike.  Most of us would have used our bikes prior to the GPS world.  The only way around this is to add muiltiple manual activities with distances of 999km.  but then it shows that my longest ride is 999km....

  • Agree with this. Just put some 'summer wheels' on one bike yet am keeping the others.

    In fact, it would be handy to go a step further and move components to different bikes, as the wheels I've taken off will be going on another one of my bikes.

  • Was just about to start a new thread on this very issue. Glad it came up on a search, but disappointed that this idea was posted in 2014 and still hasn't been integrated in some fashion.

  • hi all..

    the element "Bottom Bracket" should be added; and once selected a component we need to have the possibility to select it again. for example: the wheels; the toothed wheels (crowns); pinions.
    things that most users have more than one type and that combine depending on the sporting period

  • Like Brad, I was about to add a similar suggestion.

    The ability to shift components between bikes and retain their mileages would be very useful..

    However lend my bike to someone else...(as in manually add miles without it going on one's personal total...)

    does he also let mates sleep with his wife ;)

  • The manual promises: "You can keep detailed track of mileage for each component."

    BUT if you take a component off your bike (retire), you can't ever put it back again. As the title says, un-retiring is essential. The component feature is pretty much useless without it. 

    And why should the components be restricted to a predefined list? What if I would like to add a rack? Or keep track of e-bike batteries? Maybe the designers of this feature originally had basic consumables like chains and brake pads in mind. Please make it more useful as there is a lot more potential in it! 

    Best regards, Jukka

  • Hi everyone,

    If you need to have better control over bikes and components usage, you might want to have a look at mainTrack.app.

    It’s a mobile app that helps you to stay on top of your gear’s usage in mileage, hours and number of activities based on your Strava rides. You can add initial mileage to your gear and it will add up to its total usage.

    The app has a Component module that allows you to assign components to a bike for a certain period of time, and the bike's activities for that period will count towards the component’s usage. 

    You can also create a maintenance plan and keep a service history so that you know when you last serviced your bikes and components and how long they last.

    Regards,

    Christiano
