Currently Live Segments via our Garmins are disabled for average grades of 0.25% and less. This needs to be reduced to something like -1.0% or somewhere before true danger can arise. Sure, I get it that we don't want people racing down mountains into intersections, but at some point the user has to take responsibility for their behavior.
However, the case in point is that the 0.25% grade threshold eliminates the VAST majority of segments for riders in flat areas like the Midwest. We use a lot of flat stretches somewhat like competitive TT's, but none of them show up on our Garmins in real-time. Large portions of the Strava user base have been geographically excluded from a fairly key feature of segment competition.
The feature is supposed to be a premium benefit for subscribers, so please reduce the broad strokes that had been taken previously and reduce the threshold to something more reasonable. Racing a 0 or -1% grade isn't going to cause the vast majority of users any danger.
