Disagree - you can get lots of great info from Strava without sharing or looking at other's rides. I happen to choose to do both and enjoy the extra motivation it provides.

For me it's all about CRUSHING PEOPLE!! Or you know, dreaming about it....

I've done that a couple of times and each time it's shown up on the bryton website as 'uploaded successfully' but then when i go to strava, nothing. I'm getting much quicker at loading them to bryton, saving to computer then loading to strava so i'm not bothered. Especially now that i've managed a 2nd on a segment, any amount of hassle is worth it :D .

Yeah ... dunno if I'd go that far. I think its definitely more than just a social app. I don't really use the social aspect of it and the premium features are certainly more orientated towards analysis than the social aspect.

Having a mac and looking at what training software is out there there would seem to be a niche for an app that has moderate level analysis, general tracking and a good looking user interface. Strava is very close to that with the exception of zone setting - If Strava allowed me to set my own HR zones I'd happily pay premium and it would fulfill all my training analysis needs (at the moment). It's definitely not a prosumer analysis tool but I'd argue that for the general cycling populous who are "semi-serious" about their training it would fit the bill.

The comparison/social stuff is a nice to have for me. It gives me a general benchmark of where I sit within the population that ride my routes but it gets taken with a big pinch of salt and at the moment I don't feel the need to try to smash segments or crush people - although that may change when my capability to crush or C2Cmax (tm) increases :evil: .

I agree it is great fun... also agree it is great motivation...I do all my testing on Strava runs ( as a few of you would know :lol: ).
Also a super way to find good riding areas in a new region. On my last holiday in Spain all my rides were based of strava loops ( and beating KOM's of course! ).
I don't even have a speedo on my handle bars but no one could say I am not serious with my training, if I bothered with a power meter again then Golden Cheetah would do just fine and it is free. Strava doesn't have much ability to look at files closely like WKO+ or Golden Cheetah. HR I will never bother with :P .
So for me it is the ultimate Cycling Facebook :lol: ... although I had a Strava staff member on one of my Tour de France trips and I told him that... he wasn't so impressed... very serious American :P .

If strava is facebook, and veloviewer lets you view strava stuff in a 'cool' way, that must make veloviewer instagram :P

Ian, I agree!
I also like the filter on segments, it's always good to filter the high profile KOM's to the top.

Aah this is what i got a gps and strava for, logging the big stuff. 2.9k climb at 9.5%, segment page reckons a max of 42.6%? Maybe not quite that but i was only just able to clear the pinches in 44-30 with the front wheel lifting off the ground and wouldn't have ridden the whole thing if not for a 28t granny ring.

How do you edit your rides or get Strava to recalculate the whole ride?

I did a standard loop this morning that Strava always calculates as 49.3-49.4 km in length. Today Strava reckons that it was 53.8km. The only thing that was different was I stopped to have a chat with a mate for about 15-20min. This also happened to be in the middle of a segment. This has happened once before when I stopped to fix a flat mid segment. Is this a known Strava glitch or is it something else?

i've never tried but they're just text files in a set format. you can supposedly edit them - strava has a ride edit function.

look at the map trace - has it altered your route?

I can only give you 1 Kudos on Strava, but there would be plenty more if I could.

Also, a NPCCI of 81! jaysus!
