Track My Gear (Bikes and Components) by Hours used

Hello there,
considering we already have the amount of km spent on a bike, maybe someone else (or is it just me) wouldn't mind also seeing the time spent on a specific bike: the main reason is because maintainance on a road bike is mostly based on the amount of km you've ridden (at least that's the only thing I think about: when to switch tires), while on a mountain bike you need to know more or less how much time you have spent on it in order to maintain suspensions.
Bye!

    Thanks for the great suggestion. I know this topic has been around for a while, but we simply haven't been able to spend any resources on the Gear tracking and managing feature. Please keep the comments coming, as we hope to invest in this feature at some point in the future.

  • Tracking "My gear" by hours would be very useful and I assume very simple to include on this section of your website. There are certain components such as power meters, heart rate monitors and bike computers where batteries need to be changed on number of hours rather than distance. Furthermore, when I use a direct drive turbo trainer which I cannot track mileage so time will be helpful in this case too. I kindly ask that you add a time feature to the My Gear section of Strava. Thanks

  • I'm looking at something similar. For example, need to know when do perform fork maintenance on my mountain bike.

  • Also for shoes!  In winter I usually run a lot on the treadmill and since I haven't got a footpod it would be nice to also track time on the gear.

  • Good ideas. I'd like to see this type of feature too. 

    I sent the following to the Help desk: "Notify me when I have...(run)" feature for cycling, and any other category of gear for that matter and have a choice of time or distance. This would be very useful to track maintenance items on a bike. For example, shocks require servicing at 120 hours intervals, or chains need replacing at 1500 miles, etc.  They instructed me to add on to posts with similar requests... so here I am. 

    I looks like there are a few threads on the same subject. Hopefully Strava engineers are consolidating them to get a better representation of how many folks would like to see this type of feature.

  • Yes, please add feature to track hours spent on components. Thank you.

  • Another thing to add, I sometimes ride a local bike park and just manually enter hours spent at the park with no mileage entered. I'd like to keep track of total hours spent on bike to manage maintenance on suspension whether I record distance/time or just time. Gracias...

  • I'd really like to see miles and time on each bike by year - essentially more reporting/analytics on gear.  Seems like an easy and obvious set of features.

  • Agreed - very valuable.
    It would be awesome to be able to track and reset by component - and even pop up when required.

    E.G Rockshox Pikes have a recommended 50 hour lower leg lube and 200 hours for full service. This could be user entered, Strava don't need to collect the data.  A pre-set 'goal' showing hours logged would allow preventative maintenance , then click 'reset' when done and start logging again.  Total hours, hours since last service.

  • Agree. Need to know hours for shock servicing. In general the gear section could be a lot more useful to help maintain your bike:
    - set reminders on components to give you an alert when a service is due
    - generally make the UI a bit more flexible and useable- allow old components to go back into service and start tracking them again, such a chains or tyres

    Would also like to see total hours in the All Time stats mon my profile.

  • Another vote for this feature! It would be really good to be able to see hours ridden per bike for servicing schedules!

  • Strava Admins.

    This idea of integrating component monitoring will be great, and gain you MANY PAID users.

    Tracking components by hours used OR km's used can be useful , especially for MTB suspension services with different intervals F&R.

    Currently I use SportTraks ONLY for equipment tracking and Strava for the rest. So 2 platform side by side.

    I will upgrade and pay for / buy Strava premium for this feature!!!!!!!

    Hope you look at this feature soon.
    Will be a great addition to a well used platform.

    Regards
    Chris

  • I would like to see tracking time and distance by Bike Type added as well. This would be very helpful for keeping track of maintenance tasks like replacing chains and fork seals.

  • This would be great, especially for maintaining suspension on bikes. They typically give service intervals in hours, not distance. It'd be especially awesome to also maybe allow custom defined alerts (by distance OR time) for various components to be checked. Eg: check chain wear on road bike every 1000km, or check suspension every 50hrs.

  • I have added components today and specified the date on which the component was added and the current total km was calculated.  Sweet.

    If Strava keeps track of km and how long the ride was, is the hours data not already there in the activity data?  Could it be as easy as adding a column to the component list and calculate the hours as well?

    I checked a GPX file of one of my activities and the fourth line down is:

    <time>2016-05-18T22:47:50Z</time>

    Subtract this from the last <time> line in the file will give you then length of the activity, yes?

  • In addition to tracking components by hour, for the purposes of suspension maintenance, It would be great to have a maintenance tracking section, where you can log specific maintenance performed for each bike. Similar to adding a new component to a bike in the My Gear section, it would be great to add a "maintenance performed" line item. So, that you know when suspension bearings have been serviced, or that you sent your shock off to get serviced, etc.

  • Strava, I'd also like to be able to track gear usage by hours, please!

  • Yes,

    This would be an excellent addition to the gear section, to be able to track hours spent on bike for maintenance intervals. I will upgrade to Strava premium for this feature.

  • Any word on this feature coming along? Would love to see this functionality added.

  • This is key for mtb suspension maintenance, please add it asap. Given that we already select which bike is used for which activity, this would not be a difficult field to add.

  • I also agree with the idea of tracking hours spent by equipment, specially for maintenance proposes like the fork/suspension preventive maintenance. That will be a great added feature!

  • +1 this would be useful. I just had to go into 'My Activities' and copy/paste a bunch of data from multiple pages into Excel - just to figure out how many hours I'd logged on my dropper.

  • Premium member NEEDS hours... Time for Strava to spend some money to write some new code into their software...

  • Ditto, I was so sure that this already exists that I did not pay attention to noting the time spent with my MTB shock/fork. Now I need to go via the training log manually and note thich bike I used and how long was it used to determine whether it is time for shock maintenance. Please, that doesn't sound like a big feature request - sounds like a simple SQL query for you guys :)

    Thanks, Marcin

  • I was about to post the same request until I saw this post.

    Definitely makes sense, and those of us that also run already receive notifications when we've done a predetermined number of kms in our shoes, prompting us to replace them.

    A resettable "Hours Ridden" notification for bikes would be great, especially for us MTBers.

  • I too want to see hours for each gear. I have a SRM power meter and the batteries are good for only a certain amount of hours. I can't find anyway to show that currently. Please add. Thanks,

  • I agree. This would be VERY VERY useful. Today i count this manually by looking at the date for the last service(i add service interval as components) and go through the months calculation which i a bother.

    Love to see this feature.

  • I checked this today to see if I could tell how many hours I've ridden by mountain bike to evaluate whether or not it's ready for a suspension service. KM's don't really help much.

    I'd LOVE to see this feature - knowing how much time I'm spending on my bikes is much more interesting and useful information than the distance covered Thanks Strava team!
