Strava Ads

Postby Arbuckle23 » Wed Jun 20, 2018 7:29 am

Latest update to the Strava app sees ads at the bottom of Wahoo Element users and Zwift users rides.
I am a Premium user and a a bit annoyed at this. If I was a free user I wouldn't mind, but I pay for it so expect no ads.
Am I being a little precious ?

Ads on Premium users is crazy.
Perhaps it is just a bug in the new changes which is showing ads to Premium?

If you pay for the newspaper it's still full of ads. If you pay for Foxtel it's still full of ads. I don't like it either but that's life.

Evey year when I pay for Strava Premium I wonder why I bother. The suffer score (or it's new politically correct name) is about the only thing I like about it.

Solution is to ditch your account. If enough people leave the service then they'll notice.

I did that 6 months ago. Roll on the movement of not caring how far or how long you have ridden for :D

That's what happened in Brisbane with the toll tunnels. They increased the price and made about $25k more than what they were achieving with more cars and cheaper tolls.
