Retire gear component

Mt. Kenya

Hi everyone. Is there any hack how to retire an added component to specific date at my bike in the Strava application. Here is the situation, I changed a chain 14 days ago, but I forget to retire the previous one on the day of change. When I want retire the old one, it counts all the kilometers it did not do. thank you



Hi Blechoun,

Thanks for writing in about this.  When you retire bike components, you can't specify a date and the current date will be used as the retirement date.  However when you add the new version of the component, you can specify an "added on" date and that date can be in the past.  I hope that helps.

 It would be a nice addition to the Gear feature if we could both specify the retire date (when doing it "in arrears,") as well as "un-retire" gear to bring it "back into service" to resume miles accrued against the component. Tires are a great example of gear that gets swapped out all the time: my gravel bike gets tires based on the sort of ride I'll be doing, from "sloppy pavement" to "gnarly back roads", and I regularly swap between 3 different sets.
