    MTBR FatBike Forum Strava page

    Were not racing anyone, we live all over the world and most of us will never meet.

    Ive created a page on Strava called MTBR FatBike Forum for any of you's who want to join and share your rides.

    I know a few on here are anti-strava but i only use it to log rides, share rides and compare my fatbike times to the mortals on carbon XX1 XC bikes.

    Its nice to see where people ride, more and more of us have GPS, even the global fatbike day can benefit from this.

    Its ok to say what you are doing, this can let us share.

    You dont even need a GPS, an iphone or android app can upload here.

    I just started using Strava and I like it. When I joined this group it imported all of my rides including the road and mountain rides. Is that an issue? I don't know if there is a way to prevent that. If you are looking for fat bike rides only for this group and I can't figure out how to separate them let me know.

    You can add your various bikes to Strava and indicate which one was used for which ride.

    I have done that. Just wondering if I can or should allow only the fat bike rides to be imported to the group?

    Absolutely not, all your rides are welcome.

    When someone clicks on the ride, the bike you rode will be displayed.... regardless whether you ride Road, MTB, Fat, CX... ect we get to see your rides.

    I've never used Strava. I use a Garmin and upload nearly all of my activities on Garmin Connect but it will be a first using Strava.

    I think it's funny that you want to do this. I have friends that don't even allow me to see their ride information. I don't get it. I might would understand a Lance Armstrong type not wanting others to see what he does, but for normal people it doesn't seem like it matters.

    Ya there is. If you can export a nav file, strava can import it. I used to use Sports Tracker and was able to import almost all my rides.

    My first time using Strava is joining this fat bike group/club. I did a 110 mile road ride this past weekend and for a popular 20 mile road bike stretch north of town, I have the second best time with an average speed of 18.8 mph, on the 50 pound FAT BIKE.

    strava in a fatbike context would be how slow you can go without falling over?

    Strava needs to calculate the number of logs I roll over on the beach per ride

    I didn't see a way to easily take data from Garmin Connect but Strava does upload directly from the Garmin Edge 800.

    MTBR FatBike Forum Strava page

    I am in. I use Strava and RWGPS. I like Strava for the humility and RWGPS for most everything else. The metrics and the maps are much better on RWGPS for my style.

    I had never heard of the app until today. I have been using sportypal to track my rides. I joined and will give it a shot this weekend.

    Select the "export" tab when you are viewing one of your Garmin Connect activities, and save it as a TCX file to your computer. Now log on to Strava, click on the "upload" button, and select "from file". Pretty easy to do.

    I still have bunches of rides on my edge 605 so that shouldn't be an issue.

    You cant, unless you only upload fatbike rides. When you click on the ride you have just done it tell's you what bike was used.

    I usually put "fat" in the description somewhere.

    Here:

    Strava Segment | Stuck in the middle...of the lake

    Thought I'd share my fatbike "specific" segment. We did this ride on January 1st, 2013. The lake was frozen over and had about 2 inches of snow on top. So, I made a segment in the middle of the lake. Try to take that KOM *****es!

    In. I have two bikes and when I upload the files, I just edit to put which bike I ride. My default is my fat bike.

    I've had that same experience. Although with all the waves that I seem to encounter, maybe the map is more accurate than I thought.

    I get to create all of my own segments. If there have been other Fatbikers along the beach here for the last 8 years, and I don't think there have been, they don't use Strava.

    Well ozzy, it looks like the rest of the fat bikers are anti Strava or their rides are secret.
