Would be good to have maintenace informattion for your equipment integrated in Strava.

Perhaps more useful for biking, you could ad manually entries about, for example:

- When you changed tubeless liquid

- When you changed tha chain

- When you made fork maintenace

Crossing this data with activities data, you could get a "timeline" with all mainteninece operations you have done. So you can know hom many hours of use/kilometers/time since you made maintenance and you will know when you have to do again.

Aditional option could be to add alerts like "Made fork maintenance after 100 hours" "Change tubeless liquid after 6 months" "Replace chain after 2000 km" and Strava reminds it once time has fulfilled according to the data of activities. On the same way, you could know the time/kilometers left until you need to do new maintenance operations

As I'm sure many others do, I make use of the mileage tracking on my running shoes through STRAVA, but for the consideration of this group, would it also be worth the effort to include the ability to track mileage on a set of tires for a given road bike, hybrid, MTB, etc.?   This is something of a rabbit hole as tire types can wear differently based on rubber compound, average speed, terrain, etc., so it would just be a rough estimate on when to replace your tires.

Similiarly, does anyone think a time-based metric for replacing gear is worthwhile?  As my physical therapist reminds me, the foam used in running shoes continuously breaks down over time, regardless of use.  So even if it's a pair of "race" shoes that only see but so much activity, a STRAVA reminder that they may be past their prime in 18 months (regardless of current mileage) could be useful.  Same logic would apply for bicycle tires.

Like you, I also get reminders when I hit 250 miles on my running shoes (you can setup notifications for shoes starting at 250 miles and up in increments of 50 miles - but I rarely run past 200 miles before retiring my shoes), I also do like the idea of lifespan for all kinds of gear (tires, chains, cassettes, etc.) that you could get notifications on.  I would like age as an option as well on the gear (again, particularly shoes and helmets)

I do not have running shoes 😁 but as I use the part list list for my bike I agree having an reminder option for chains, brake pads, chain rings, cassettes.... would be usefull.

I want to know when I've replaced a battery on my e-bike, but you don't have it on your list of components. Please add to the list I'm assuming it's pretty easy 🙂 🔋

Thanks!

Have been meaning to post this request for years. I was about to post this exact request. I (and all of my mates) agree this feature is a no brainer. I assume it would be quite simple to implement? No different to 'adding a new bike' -- but it sits as a sub category of the bike?

Following on from my previous post... not sure where we are supposed to go for people to 'give kudos'? If these posts were 'easier to find', I'm sure 95% of strava users would agree that this feature is invaluable.

I’m guessing this is the place to leave the requests for a bike ‘maintenance calendar.

 

- batteries - brake pads - rear cassette- front cassette - rear cassette - chain

 

Once you have ‘added your bike’ to strava, you have categories you can add which can easily be updated when the items are replaced. Simples

 

assuming someone from strava reads this… thanks in advance 🤭🙏

@The_finger I think this would be a great feature too.

Unfortunately I am not as organised as I would like and having strava as my maintenance whiteboard would be a great addition.

Cracking idea... I have no memory for when I have changed cassettes, chains, tyres etc.... would be great to have all info in one place along with the ability to see how much life each component is getting when matched with activities on Strava...

would be useful for bike like maintenance of forks which is in hours

Why not keep a notebook?  Write it down and throw it on a shelf.  I personally have a spreadsheet on my computer, took 3 minutes to make.  For my car i have a small notepad in the glovebox, shows date and mileage I change things like the oil and brakes.

I think adding the ability to check maintenance items done to each ride would be extremely helpful. If I could just check "New Rear Tire", "New Chain", "New Front Tube" or "Cleaned and Lubed Chain" at the end of a ride, then it should be easy to have information on when maintenance is required.  A maintenance page showing how many miles since each of these items were addressed would help me know what maintenance is required.  Perhaps a notification "Check Chain Wear" or "New Chain Due" could pop up after a ride.

Thanks @N00DlesHead.

If you arent' paying for a subscription - sure. Notepads scattered around your house work fine.

But if you pay for a subscription, you want the app to store and record all of my fitness related info in one place? Surely?

That being said, I did find (buried deep within the strava dashboard), they have already included a very basic  components tracking feature  - located under 'my gear'. This feature could easily be improved, but it does exactly what was requested in the initial post - allows you to add and retire accessories on your bike. And more importantly it keeps track of distance travelled for each component.
