Component Mileage Logging?

What do you use to log your component mileage, cassettes, chains, tyres etc
Does anyone have any nifty spreadsheets or even an app that they wish to share?

I use Strava for this.... has a handy little database that allows you to add any of your bits and pieces for each of your bikes. I like that you can retire parts once they've been changed out, so you can keep a record of part numbers etc for future reference.

I use Strava - Under Settings -> My Gear -> Click on a bike -> Components.

A few times I've forgotten to log tyre changes etc, but I remember I replaced them eg last Saturday, so enter the date and it calculates the mileage for you on that date.

Ben, it doesn't seem to do that for me, I enter in a post date and it states the mileage is 11,000km (the bike frame mileage), doesn't seem to caluclate/backdate for me.

Hmm. I wonder when that came in. It doesn't seem that long ago that I used it.

I use Strava as well.

I noticed the bug in the distances yesterday when I wanted to check the age of my shifter cables as I just broke one.

I am sure they will fix the problem.

I have been using BikeJOurnal for this but must check out Strava. Much better to just have to log rides once.

I use Strava and it seems to work well. Only downside is it can't cope with multiple components, eg I have two sets of wheels/tyres/cassettes for training and fast rides/climbing. Last I looked at it I tried retiring a wheel set but you couldn't then resurrect it when you put those wheels back on the bike.

Otherwise seems good.
