Strava has decided to stop anyone from making short segments...
This is because the accuracy is not as good with short segments, I can understand this and have experienced short segments that don't record correctly. But my cycling is mostly hilly rides and I make a lot of segments that are steep and take me from 1 to 2 minutes. Now I can't make them any more, even though they aren't short in reality due to the elevation. I tried to make one earlier, it was 13.1% offroad and it definitely wasn't short, took me: 1min 41seconds.. but there was a message saying 'segment too short'. I've written to Strava about it, and they say that not enough people have also written in to say that they would prefer to be able to make short segments again.
I asked if they could use a calculation to include the elevation so that it would be fair for everyone. Or an option for shorter segments, only if you choose for it to be 'private'. But unless more people want to have the option to be able to make short segments again (like we always have been able to do), they said that they won't be changing it back.
With uphill segments that take from 1min to 1min 50sec, when it's steep/uphill the accuracy always seems very good. I can still work out my times by using the analysis page, then measure it myself like I have in this pic, then I'd need to make a note of it to add to my ride, make a file and record all the times myself, bit of a pain.
Here is the segment I tried to make..
