Improvements for Gear section of Strava (Cycling)

I am at a crossroads with equipment list management. I am about to dump tracking all my components as I have seen no improvements in a very very long time. I switch around wheels and tires all the time and that tough to track the way it's currently setup here on Strava. But now I have recently cracked my frame and is being replaced under warranty. I will be moving all my component to this new frame, so this is where it will be a complete failure for me. How do I track going forward? Components are tracked by Frame and not individually.

 

Support Summary:

1. Allow components to exist independently from bikes/frames

Instead of limiting only one active version of each component per bike, components would exist as a "pool" and could be removed from a bike without being retired, could be "shelved" for any amount of time without accumulating mileage, and could be easily switched between bikes. Like different tiers - at the top level there is a group of frames, and under that is a group of components, any amount or type of components you wish to track. Then there is freedom to match the components to the frames in any desired way. 

2. Ability to add historical usage to a frame or component

As the system currently stands, bikes and components added to Strava are treated as new, with zero use. Of course, we know this is only the case a fraction of the time. For a functional gear tracking system there needs to be a way to add an item to the system with historical mileage/usage. 

3. Track Gear in hours as well as miles

4. Ability to set notifications for when a component reaches a certain amount of use (miles or hours)

5. Add maintenance records, or simply a notes field to any Gear item to keep track of when equipment was last serviced

Are there any additions, or major feedback trends that I missed? -Elle

  • Would it be possible on the "My Gear" page to have a filter next to the total mileage of each bike  so you can see how many miles each  bike had done each year?

  • Great point Kim! I've just made a section for Gear Improvements for Runners: https://strava.zendesk.com/entries/26464914-Run-Gear-Improvements-Shoes

    For everyone else, thanks for sharing your feedback! This is a great collection of ideas for how to improve the Gear section of Strava, which I hope we get around to doing soon.

  • Another vote for the ability to on/off the shelf certain components or unretire them.

  • Also the ability to track hours per component. Miles aren't very useful for components with service intervals expressed in time, like suspension forks or shocks.

  • Come on Strava! Fix this!

    We need shelf support, it's the least you can do, should be a seriously simple fix! Could you at least update us with how high this is on your list, or an ETA?

  • yeah it would be really handy to be able to have a "log book" for your bike so you can use it for regular maintenance or as proof of maintenance and servicing of your bike if you wanted to sell later. Tracking your components and hours or distance used would be part of this.

  • Yes. Tune ups, tire mileage component time would be very helpful

  • This would be an awesome feature to have wheels and bikes. Or at least being able to put a component on a bike and use a date previous to the date the entered the bike and have it calculate correctly, not just the miles you have on the bike.

  • I would very much like to be able to filter the stats by the bike ridden. I ride 3 different bikes and would like to view the rides associated with each separately. And FWIW, tracking usage for different components does not interest me; seems overly complex for an app like this, plus different components get swapped in and out regularly.

  • @Andrew Freeman, yes it would be a bit complex using the app but not if you use the strava website as well. Which a lot people tend to use besides the app.

  • @ Andrew Freeman, it may not interest you, but it interests many people who swap wheels and components between bikes. Being able to see how many miles you have on each wheel set w/ tires and cassette that gets swapped between bikes would be nice. This would also be something that would be done from the site, not necessarily from the app. In my case, I got a new bike without a drivetrain, i moved those parts from my old bike. But those components are only reading the miles i have on the new bike, not the miles total on those components.

  • I very much agree with John Massaro and Graham..

    Strava, honestly, will this be a feature in the (near) future? It looks like the consensus is that this feature would be very helpful for a lot of Strava users....

  • Solution: Define component sets for a bike

    For example i have two chains, the first for training and the second one for race. it would be great if i could define a set of components and could choose which set was used in particular activity.

  • ... of course components should be shared amoung sets. this would help to track distance for each part of a bike

  • Really would love to see the "Shelf."  Please!

    Frankly, wouldn't this data be enormously valuable to Strava and it's users?  Several million people reporting actually usage would let users (and manufacturers) get amazing insight to real-world component lifespans; Heck, a shop owner mentioned it earlier but Strava could send a friendly (automated) reminder like "Your Ultegra chain has 7000 miles on it- the average lifespan among your fellow Strava users is 3500- you may want to check chain stretch (and you probably killed your cassette too)... Oh and here's a coupon for Joe's bikes... I mean the Strava gear store..."

  • Kevin Williams by far has the best description and pitch to get it implemented.

  • A follow up thought- include the ability to transfer (give) logged equipment between Strava followers.  For example- the bike I was using today has at least 3 major parts that were given to me or sold to me by other Strava users who logged original component miles.  If there were a shelf the wheelset would be removed from bike X and placed on "shelf" at 2xxx miles then transferred/given/sold to Kevin whereupon it is on his "shelf" to be added to a bike retaining its mileage.

  • +1 for tracking gear. Getting a cracked frame replaced under warranty and all of my old components are getting moved over. I guess my best option is to change the name of the bike and put a note on how many of those miles were on the original frame? Not super elegant. Liking the shelf idea, though. Lots of good business opportunities, too, as pointed out by Kevin Williams. Let's make it happen, Strava!

  • I swap wheels and tires on my bike regularly so would also like something like the "shelf" idea to facilitate tracking mileage on these items.

  • +1 on an unretire/shelf option.

    Also the ability to manually enter the retire date as you can with the install date would be good. Currently when you retire a component the removal date just defaults to the current date.

  • (https://strava.zendesk.com/entries/33233510)

    Some weeks ago I replaced some parts on my bike but I forgot to retire the old parts and add the new ones on "My Gear". 
    It is currently not possible to retire gear on any other day than "today".
    It's no problem adding new gear back in time but what use is that if I can't retire the old gear back in time as well? 

    -----

    I second the ideas of being able to re-add previously used gear. If a chain brake then it's "retired" but if I replace my summer tires with my winter tyres then I'd like to re-add the summer tires when the snow melts away.

  • id really like to see a starting mileage option..for example I added my mountain bike to strava but know it had xxx miles on it before I added it. Would be nice for it to start at a set number if we want instead of just zero.

  • +1 for being able to switch between components (e.g. training & race wheels)

  • I purchased a new bike on 14th Feb 2014 and I did not add it to my list for quite a few months after that, it now says i have ridden 100 miles aprox on this bike when the facts are more like 500 miles, Strava please listen to us and allow us to change the start date of a piece of equipment

  • Sean Hickey - All you need to do, is go back and edit the ride you made with that bike to show that bike and not your old one. It will add those miles to it.
