Not a how many (I’ve had a few) – I’m certainly not the King of my local area though.
Mostly as a riding group we take them off each other, but there are other people on the leaderboards – obviously.
Question is, when you’ve had one, out of how many riders is it?
A couple of mine stand, but max of 20’ish riders I think – max was 196, but my mate took it straight off me when he uploaded, so current best is 2/196.
Loads of mates have KOM’s where only 5-10 people have ridden (or logged) the segment – me included, but what’s your best head count?Posted 4 years agofbkMember
This thread made me check for the first time in ages (I try to ignore that side of Strava these days) – bizarrely, not only have I still got a Coed y Brenin KOM (1/2293) but I seem to have acquired loads I knew nothing about. Personally I love the “you’ve lost your KOM you knew nothing about on a segment you didn’t know existed….now go get it back” emails 🙂
It’s a strange (and inaccurate) world this Strava zone!!!Posted 4 years agoscaredypantsSubscriber
I have no KoMs and haven’t ever really had one
There’s a 20 mile road loop I made where I might still be “truly” KoM but others have done a slightly different, shorter version that strava still counts and so I’ve slipped a bit
I’m under no illusions though – I’m not fast and those segments only have me that high up because not many ride the exact same loop (only 45 riders)Posted 4 years agonickdaviesSubscriber
I’ve got a 1st/5500 at Cannock, but I’m pretty sure it’s a glitch even though the routes accurate and I was going pretty quick… 😉 ill take it though!
Currently got a 1st/59 on a climb/descent on the road bike, and a few top 3s in sections around Birmingham. Every time I get one normally I lose it to a bloke called Justin!Posted 4 years agoDufferMember
I’ve only just installed Strava, and i’ve uploaded a load of my old stuff in retrospect.
On quite a few sectors, i seem to be in the top few-hundred of a few-thousand riders… I can cope with that!
I recon the best way to a KOM would be to hammer it on a section that people usually pootle – like the road from the car park!Posted 4 years agorichmtbguruMember
Strava is not the place to prove you are quick, as it can be jigged, saying this I make a kom every time I go out on the bike, I never bothered using strava until one of my clients recommended me using it, a few of my clients would always tell me how fast I was on the bike, I never told them I could have been a pro! 😆Posted 4 years ago
My recent stat is 1/6547, this was a climb the same day I came 1/4299 on descent, this is a regular pattern,
I’m very passionate about my riding and have never had anyone overtake me on a climb or descent.
I have over 300 koms since being on strava 8 month ago, needless to see why I teach mountain bike skills! 🙂NorthwindSubscriber

Most (if not all) of the pro’s i know laugh at the strava queens and would never consider using it
I was idly looking at some segments I’ve done, and duly laughed at the following strava queens- Greg Minaar, Jack Reading, Chris Ball, Matt Page, Gary Forrest, Duncan Riffle… and that pesky Greig Brown!Posted 4 years ago
