Just start to use Strava and found it possible to select equipment. Really nice feature to keep track on service and chain change of bicycle/bicycles but couldn't find a way to select equipment from the app. Stravas API does allow upload of equipment #, but not add new equipment what I've understand, but just the possibility choose a 1 or 2 in the upload would be greate.

I like the idea but where did you find the possibility? I can't find it in the Strava API.

Hi henning,

I'm not a dev (only VBA in Excel when needed), so correct me if I'm wrong here. Locus uploads to Strava using "POST /uploads", which does not allow to set gear. But after upload could Locus update activity using "PUT /activities/{id}" which seems to support "gear_id"? Could list of gear_ids be obtained using "GET /athlete"? Although I don't know which scopes Locus is using vs. which is needed for this...

Hello Václav,

your description is correct. This should be doable, I can confirm.

We are currently working on our own web solution and this idea has currently "only" 5 starts after five years. I'm currently not sure if with recent changes on the Strava side, time investment into this task worth it.

Hi Menion,

I understand. You're right, Strava is getting worse a nobody knows with what they come up next. Thank you for quick answer and for your time and work on Locus.
