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.

  • Hello,
    yes, it will differentiate the segments road and 
    mountain bike depending on the type of actyvité
    road or mountain bike or type of bike. The problem
    of today where I live is that the vtt take vans to
    climb the road without stopping the course strava and
    suddenly road cyclists lose all their koms.

  • You need also to do something for e-bike, like a special flag with the following functionalities :

    - auto detect suspect e-bike activities (elevation speed above 1500m/h for road on 2km+ segment, above 1000m/h for MTB) if a bike is not selected
    - allow the possibility for other members to report a suspected e-bike activity

  • Still no proper use of Sub-Type:

    Here's a common discussion I have with club members who want to use Strava with multiple bike types:

    Strava need to use the Sub-Type field. We would be Riding->Elliptical then we could filter ourselves easily on any leaderboard for any segment and set the club to be that Sub-Type only so you could road ride or MTB on Strava and it wouldn't effect anything on club leaderboards. I have written about this extensively in the past and have some suggestions on the Strava forums that have been up there for years with no action from Strava yet. Even moaned to the Strava CTO when he visited my office...

    >>What was their CTO's reason for not implementing it?

    ...well he said his people would look into it but it's a classic change management situation - they have 40 million users, 8 million activities per day so they are super conservative on any change. I think the sub type change could be done with complete backwards compatibility. By default everyone who has a 'ride' gets road Sub-Type. You then have option of running a new Sub-Type generator for old rides based on gear - where your gear can be assigned a Sub-Type (road by default). So if you make your Specialized Rockhopper a 'MTB' suddenly all your old rides with that bike then get Sub-Type of MTB (and any new ones that you have that gear set to default) - so all those people moaning for their own categorized MTB segments etc suddendly can filter on the Sub-Type for a segment and see only MTBs. The beauty of this is it doesn't change the underlying ride data. IT WOULD change the UI both on mobile and web. But there has been 1000's of people asking for road vs MTB for 6+ years and this way they can actually do it in a generic fashion which other bike types can also benefit from (or for that matter any activity with subtypes). I've posted all this many times but no progress from Strava that I'm aware o

  • One major problem with this idea is that there is no way to have everyone go back in time and edit a decade's worth of rides with the type of bike they were using. Yes, some people are good about tagging what "gear" they use for their rides and runs, but I would say a majority of people do not list their bike type or don't go back and edit it from the default bike when they are using something different. You could end up with decent data going forward, but there would be so much bad data from the past that it would make it almost useless.

  • By default all previous activities without a mappable gear who end up with no Ride Sub-Type : so would be same as today - regular road cycles.
    I think a lot of people when they first joined Strava would have out in at least one bike under gear - which is then used on every upload by default. So if that is mappable to MTB or Road Sub-Type all their data (or majority) is going to be good.
    And there's load of opportunities for clever tool add-ons to help you categorize rides based on speed and other people's Sub-Types for the same segments.

  • I have a variety of mountain bikes, one of which is a Class I emtb but there are NO segments or leaderboards for the trails I ride all the time if I change my sport to "ebike." Not all ebikes are equal, we need separate categories for Class I, Class II, and Class III. I would like the ability to simply keep all rides under the general "ride" category since that is where all the segments and leaderboards already exist, but to add the ability to filter by bike type when viewing segments & leaderboards. It would be great to be able to 'View All' so we can see how different bikes stack up against each other as well as the ability to filter by the different classes of ebikes, singlespeed bikes, tandem bikes, recumbent bikes, fixed gear, gravel, etc. For the 'View All,' it would be nice to have a column in the data showing bike type next to each athlete/time. Are there any plans to add a feature like this?

  • Would really like to see this! I take my mountain bike onto the roads for fitness as it’s hard going with fat wheels on tarmac. It would be so much better having a bike type segment no matter the surface.

    By having a drop down filter on the Segment leaderboard page to select by bike type. That way no matter the surface you can compare by bike types.

  • I am also looking forward to this functionality. It is not very objective to compare  a MTB ride, with road or Ebike ride.

  • Yes this feature request is one of the most requested since 2012. I doubt anyone for Strava actually looks at the system for feature requests. It seems simple enough that if they did, they would give us an update of where the feature requests in the product map.
