I would assume he's working with a 24 month contract @ £30-£40 a month.

My Garmin edge 500 was £180 and a few weeks later £30 for HR monitor.... Should have gone for the bundle!!! £225 for bundle is hardly cheap.... In fact, it's half the price of an iPhone 4s!

Just flag the ride!
PS: I have just done it, so no longer on the leaderboard.

----------------
28 secs @ 853W (18.1mph) gets me 15th :roll:

Best time is 20 sec (25.3mph!). Don't you just hate these racing snakes! Boo, hoo!
Anyway, these shot segments are pointless [lol]

lol.. Red Baron ... it's toned down a bit now.
Black bar tape, black tyres and no stem spacers (well maybe, but they are on top!). Unfortunately, it's no longer shiny and needs a good clean. Maybe next month!

i think they created that segment (original poster) ??

just a guess mind...


Just to clear this one up - 'riders name - OP' indicates a rider of the Oakley Pedalers (OP) - a friendly group of cyclists from near Basingstoke who've all added the OP to their name on Strava. It has nothing to do with the segment creation.


In fact they are so friendly that they flag any KOMs you get and then block you on Strava :lol:

Edit: Got some of my KOMs back after raising a support ticket. :D

GUTTED!

I thought I'd have a go at KOM from Manchester to Bury, missed it.

My HR is craaazy, holding 190+ and normal perceived effort at 170.

Goood effort though!


I also missed out on the elusive KOM today: http://app.strava.com/rides/23374023

had a raging tailwind and was spinning like mad on my 50x12 http://app.strava.com/rides/23374023#417372448

Its annoying because the KOM was obviously sitting at the back of a fast group with a HR of 126!

I've only just a got a Garmin and got onto the Strava thing, but the one thing that I look at is people's HR's and if it's 120 odd or so, it's a bit of a joke and obvious someone's drafting.

I train a lot on HR and I hope it's a feature people look at when I get a KOM, as to know they are genuine efforts. Although the sections local to me are now being canned by local elite and pro riders, but fair do's to them - just incentive for the mere mortals like me to train harder!

anyone know if the kudos count towards anything or are they more along the lines of a "like" on facebook or whatever?

Training on HR is not the best as such, but thats going OT.
As Strava unlike Endomondo is still failing to support ANT+ (they need to address this ), then I dont have HR recorded on my Strava road rides... but I can assure you that my KOMS are genuinely earnt.. even the one I did racing... how do I know..? I set it when I had been dropped and was chasing back on like a mad feck.

Does anybody know what happens when a segment is flagged? It is automatically removed, in which case is it prudent to message the rider first? Or do Strava bods assess it before taking any action?

Also, when uploading an exported file from my 310xt, the heart rate doesn't seem to transfer, whereas when importing the same file into other apps such as Sportstracker, the heart rate does upload? Any suggestions?

There is a certain amount of kudos around posting fast times with plenty of power without having a tailwind.
