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.

  • @Michael Robison There is a way to reach your goal.   Bring up the segment display then click on "My Results".  All your segment times are listed in order.  The hardest task is now to CTRL-click on each ride link (opens a new tab) and find the first MTB ride.

  • That's a very cumbersome way to go about it, though, isn't it? I just want to hit the stop button on the phone and then find out whether I've set any PRs for my winter bike (on same route as summer bike) without having to go online and faffing about.

  • I initially considered that, but I don't think it's workable unless you have two phones?

  • Yup, ride type world be a great addition, like you have for snow sports and specifically skiing.

  • Filters are a wast of time... It would be better having it as a different activity. 

    BUT

    I'm guessing that the reason strava want to set it as a fiter is because it will be easier to incorporate previous data that way... I dont fancy going back through 2 years of rides changing the activity types

  • @Gav,

    Filters aren't a waste of time on looking at data already in the system. The key here is to use 'SUB-TYPE' of Activity to designate the bike type used on an activity. For general rides the sub-type can be left blank (so you don't have to edit those two years) and you'll still appear on 'Riding' leaderboards - but if you filter the leaderboard (or challenge or whatever) on sub-type of 'Road' you'll only see your rides that you designated as 'Road'. 

    99.99% of my rides have been on elliptical bike (ElliptiGO) - so it would be type to edit the 'SUB-TYPE' on mass - e.g. select-all - mark as Elliptical - then by rides will still be on leaderboard with all blank, Road or MTB (or other bike types - e.g. tandem, unicycle etc) - but if I want to see how I stack up against all other ellipticals - I use that sub-type filter.

    This also allows clubs to be setup with sub-type filled in - so only those bike types get counted - so your MTB club isn't polluted by road rides for example.

    Anyway.... that's how I'd see it working and I've been saying the same thing for over a year without any official response from Strava - to my mind this is a doable feature addition which provides all the users asking for different bike types good support - without any downside to users. The database SW Engineers at Strava will have work to do - but I think everything would be backwards compatible.

  • I would like to see Strava use the bike type from my Garmin (1000) to automatically populate the bike type of my ride. That's one less edit I have to do every time the ride is auto-uploaded. When I start my ride on the Garmin I have already specified which bike I'm using so it seems a shame to have to enter this yet again after the upload. I'm using the automatic wifi upload via the Garmin website linked to my Strava account). I switch a lot between my Mt bike and my road bike so this would help in keeping the rides from being mis-catagorized.

  • Just add selectors to be toggled before starting a ride - mountain, road, cyclocross, run...

  • This would be great... why doesn't Strava listen to users? I think these pages are just to let us vent and wait for a change, but they are never read by anyone besides other users. Strava developers never read these, or if they do, they really don't care. A minifeed feature? What the fuck does that do to help me train??? How does a minifeed motivate me to get out on the bike and work harder? or analyze my performance? It doesn't. It is an attempt to make Strava more like facebook, with minute by minute updates for what other people are doing. I want to see how I did on the CX trail that is 2 meters from the road... without having to stack up with the 10K road riders who are NOT dismounting and running over the obstacles. Filters or different leaderboard... I don't care. I just want to see how I did against people doing MY sport. I also want goals for vertical meters climbed per week. Just because I rode 160 km a week doesn't necessarily mean much for me, as my events and my goals are often measured in vertical feet climbed. Why can't I set a goal for VAM? I can set goals for distance and power, is the vertical feet climbed so different to track? Three years I've been waiting... nothing. Nearly two years for THIS great idea. Nothing. Strava developers care more about their techy ideas than what the athletes and users want.

  • This suggestion is hopeless because of two factors.  One is it relies on self-reporting, which is extremely unreliable when people rush to upload activities.  Second is that bikes come in a continuum of designs, and while some are clearly "mountain" or "road" what do you do with cross bikes?  Then there's BMX, rando bikes, touring bikes, gravel bikes, cruisers, hybrids, "all-arounders", mutant fixies... it's simply not possible to come up with clearly differentiated categories.  So in the end up have simply another piece of useless, inaccurate data...

  • Strava: please implement a sort filter for bike type - Garmin can do this, so should Strava.
    For those suggesting this is "pointless," because you can endlessly subdivide bike types, what world do you train in?
    Serious cyclists - the ones who actually give a rat's *ss about training data - are going to be riding on a handful of performance bikes: road, trailbike, hardtail, cyclocross ...
    The data is meaningful in seeing how much time / mileage you've devoted to various disciplines, and it is also a *huge* help in keeping track of component wear:
    If I know how many miles my hardtail has, I know how close I am to a chain replacement, or conversely, whether that SRAM chain did in fact wear out or break in half the time of a Shimano.
    If unicycle & clown-bike riders want to go to the trouble of logging their mile, swell, but they are not the target audience for a site like Strava, much less training data analysis tools.

  • Strava: the simplest way to implement this would be to allow the "search" feature under activities to search the bike type field - then I could search for my own personal bike type designations, and Strava doesn't have to bother creating a million different subtype labels.

  • First, Garmin Connect is hardly an example to be emulated.  I think we all us Strava because it's so much better.  But by "hopeless" I mean that when I look at a leaderboard to be able to trust that the listed bike types are valid is "hopeless".  If you want it just for your own book-keeping, there's other ways Strava could do that, like the ability to enter arbitrary keywords for each activity.  Then you can enter anything you want: MTB vs road bike, caffeinated versus uncaffeinated, whatever.

  • Great idea, both the type of bike and adding new types of bikes are needed.. Also 3 global heat maps. The one that is currently used, one for pavement rides, and one for dirt rides. I look at the heat map to find places to ride, sometimes when I get there with my road bike, I am looking at nice trails for my hardtail.

  • seems that we've already got this partway fixed:  I choose which bike I ride every time I ride.   all we have to do is add "bike type" to the bike description.    

    Sure, it can be subdivided pretty deeply.  lumping and splitting is always a challenge.    yet can't we agree that there are mountain bikes, road bikes, and crossovers?    beyond that, let people subdivide the bikes any way they want by adding checkboxes to the bike description - clipless pedals?   fixed gear?  disc brakes?  red handlebar grips? -  i don't care what option you want to check.... i can sort by it if I choose to sort by it, or not.    

    I'm more interested to see segment stats based on bike type than I am based on 30 yr old vs. 50 yr old.    When I'm riding my MTB on a road somewhere, I'd like to see how I'm doing against other 28lb knobby tire bikes, not so much how I'm doing against feather-weight road bikes.    I'm confident that they (the road bikes) are also not that interested in how fast I can get down a fire road on which they wouldn't like to ride.

  • It would be nice to flag rides as a cyclocross ride and see who you were competing against on the trails on that type of bike.  Or also to see how you compared against yourself on the cyclocross bike vs the mountain bike.

  • Since Ellie has had nothing to say on the subject since the summer of last year.. It's fair to say that Strava aren't interested in entering discussions about this "issue". Unlike the annual achievements fiasco..

     

    I'm still uploading to strava but i'm finding that I am using other services far more these days...

  • How can there be so many comments and votes and yet nothing showing as planned? This has been here since 2012!? And there are several linked suggestions!

    I'm not renewing my premium membership until this simple functionality to differentiate between road and mountain biking is added and reflected in Leaderboards.

  • It's interesting to see such a simple feature still does not exist. If we can filter like 65-75kg riders in leaderboard, why can't we filter bike type as well?

  • It seems that they are worried that people will cheat and specify a Mt Bike when they actually rode a Road Bike. However I don't buy that argument as a reason to not do the filter at all. You can cheat on almost any of the filter criteria. It does seem like a no brainer that this SHOULD be easy to implement.

  • Doing this would be great! now segment overviews are sometimes just showing rubbish and try to compare road/off-road/roadbikes/MTB all mixed up in 1 overview.
