Gear input options for fixie spinners. Calculated calories and effort based on the ratio and speed. … it would be cool. Just sayin’. Thanks for all the years.

Hi @RatRodRob 

Thanks for your post!  Would you be able to provide more detail and clarity around your suggestion?  It sounds like you are asking for some enhancements to the Gear Page in Settings to better accommodate Fixed Gear bikes?  

We kindly ask that you review our Ideas guidelines, particularly the “What makes a good idea” section, to ensure that your ideas are clear, concise, and can reach as many others as possible.

Again, thank you for your post and effort to help our online forums to continue to grow.

Hey, we haven’t heard back from you and will be archiving this idea unless you update us within a week.


Oh hey. I am surprised to have gotten some interaction! Thanks!

Now I’m not the most technical person in this department but my idea was to have a gear ratio input area. Such as two drop boxes that would appear if you selected “fixed gear/track bike” or even “single speed.”

Then we would be able to see a relative effort and calorie calculator based in this information. 
I love using Strava to track my calories and I know I am burning more when I’m on my track bike, even though I may not be going as fast.

also uphill (and downhill) becomes a different game when you only have the one gear. 

so basically I think a calorie calculator that takes the gear ratio (front and read cog) into consideration if you are in a fixed gear or track bike would be a great addition. 

I hope I have made my idea clear. If you require any further clarification, please don’t hesitate to ask! This app has helped stay connected with my cycling friends across the world. But when I take our my fixed gear bike, I feel like it’s almost a waste to track the ride as it just doesn’t cater to the community in the same way.
