    1/2845. I reckon it’s ridden a shit load moar than it’s fought over though. In fact I don’t think anyone cares it’s there.

    1/163, most are random routes or long ones, I’m far to slow otherwise!

    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?

    1/1. No one else seems to like my training loop.

    1/32 for my best one, 1/9 for the other one.

    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 πŸ™‚

    It’s a strange (and inaccurate) world this Strava zone!!!

    1/416 on a four minute flat sprint. A popular stretch and a natural segment but I don’t think it’s on the local fast folks’ radars.

    ^^ i think its quite clever how quick it populates a new segment using the data from old ride

    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)

    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… πŸ˜‰ 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!

    Someone called Lance Armstrong seems to have popped up recently on some of ours as KOM – cheating barstool!

    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!

    1/1897 on one segment out of 18. In the top 5-10% on most of the others so quite pleased with that.

    1/641 my best. Got a few over 500 but there mostly a couple of miles from home when I’m emptying my legs. Most people wouldn’t be doing that. There pretty good though, youd have to try hard with the right wind to beat them.

    1/208.

    I’m always quite pleased to be in the top 10% of segments though. Especially as I have two gears spread over 2 bikes, and neither of them could be considered light weight whippets.

    I got one 1/950 odd, and I wasn’t even on the trail, I was on the road, 5m to the side

    In the process of getting Strava to take me off, still had a few laughs with it in the meantime….

    How many of these are uphill? I’m rubbish compared to you lot. I’ve got an uphill 1/21 and a 7/180 and that’s it πŸ™

    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! πŸ˜†
    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! πŸ™‚

    You should branch out into after dinner speaking. Riveting.

    Most (if not all) of the pro’s i know laugh at the strava queens and would never consider using it, and as for πŸ™„ , ha-ha!.

    WGAS when you’re local pro and friends are witnessed drafting a scooter regularly. Maybe they should keep the ride private if it’s being used as a ‘training tool’. A minute into Paul Oldham over Waddy Fell? Please… pfft.

    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!

    The thing I’m starting to love the most about Strava is all that gritty horrible sand that seems to keep filling up people’s vaginas….

    Oh, seems I still have a load of 1/1 KOMs from a couple of years ago when it would auto-create segments – does it still do that?

    Just waiting for someone to nab them, quick jaunt to the Mustang valley in Nepal is highly recommended for top riding and chilling out πŸ™‚
