I would love to be able to have different shoes set as my default for walking vs. running, as well as a different default bike for road vs. MTB.  I often forget to change which shoes/bike I did what on, then that messes up my milage tracking (for when to change shoes or tires/tyres).

Also while we are here please make it possible to not have a default gear. I have multiple pairs of running shoes that I regularly rotate, so whatever the default gear choice, it is almost never correct. I'd prefer not to assign any by default as an option.

That's probably one of the most requested features, yet I'm not very hopeful it will be implemented directly in Strava anytime soon, if ever. I've heard people requesting that for at least 3 years.

It's also one of the main reasons I wrote a tool to do just that, plus a bunch of other automations: https://strautomator.com

Hope it works for you 🙂

Agree with @Silentvoyager - having associated gear left blank for an activity by default will help prevent inaccurate mileage readings on things like shoes, where many runners have multiple pairs and don't "default" to one for every run.

Thanks @igoramadas for that tool/link - looks very interesting (kind of like IFTTT for Strava), I'll give it a try.  

I also think the 'default=none' as an option would be good too, as stated by @Silentvoyager and @MattS_bsb.

@CreakyCrankyou can set default to "None" with Strautomator:

Yes, please! Super relevant and would save me the time I always spend after activity upload to edit these things manually.

Love this suggestion.  My particular manifestation would be for Bike A to default when doing regular rides outdoors and Bike B to default when doing virtual rides on my trainer.

I totally agree

Not to say @igoramadas didn't write a fine tool, but I've been using an alternative--ActivityFix (activityfix.com)--that automatically updates my efforts based on sensor information available in a new activity. The standard features I use are to suppress sending really short stuff to my feed, switching gear based on something unique about that bike (power pedals or speed sensor are unique between all my bikes), and even switching to a temporary bike that I added as a rental when I was out of town for a week (any ride starting/ending inside a 10mi radius was switched to the rental, regardless of sensors).
