Strava Live Segments

Descents more than -.25% grade will no longer show up on Live Segments
 
Can you please ADVISE as to why Strava Road cycling athletes cannot download a live segment
of -1% or even -0.08%
 
So ridiculous.  I understand you safety concerns of removing the 'Descents more than -.25% but less than -.1% is beyond stupid.
 
Please tell me this is temporary.  If not, no reason to pay for summit.
 
Please advise

  • Strava has now, In my opinion, openly told us that they hate downhill, specially for mountain bikers. 

    Seems this app is purely for runners and roadies.

    Will be cancelling my "Summit" sh*t thanks to this

  • Hi, have just bought a new Garmin 530, loaded some segments..... and find that they do mot work because the 'start' is a yard higher than the 'end'..... some 600 yards away - even though the average gradient is 0% - i.e. FLAT!

    This is a crazy position to be in as a promoter of healthy active cycling. I'm sure that you can amend the algorithm and the API that passes data to Garmin with relative ease - and this would make a lot of cyclists happy. I can understand excluding steep downhills and your (probable) HSE concerns.... but lets get realistic. 0% gradient!

    Please advise your views, else as mentioned above it looks like you will lose even more subscribers.

  • Agree, live segments is ruined for MTB riders. Not worth the cost in any way, useless feature.

    Would you guys at Strava please consider the possibility to include the "dangerous" segments to live segments, with limited features?

    For example, I don't have the time to look at my watch when going downhill, but I would like to know when the segment starts and when it ends. So it would do the job if my watch vibrates/beeps when I need to start pedaling, and then vibrate again when the segment ends and its time to chill.

  • Not sure why Strava took this feature away. It's part of the only reason I subscribe. I use it for climbs, decents and runs. Regardless of the Live segement feature I'm still going to ride hard. This feature just made it more fun. We as riders accept the risk for it and I believe its in the agreement. 

    I'm hoping they change this. There should be no limit on the grade....we are the users....its should be our choice.

  • Somehow I just realized this was a "thing".  -.25% is pretty damn flat.  Come on people!  Definitely cancelling.
