Register components

You can register your bike components with ProBikeGarage to keep track of their usage and receive maintenance alerts. Also, you will be able to log your component swaps, replacements, and performed services.

Warning: ProBikeGarage cannot sync components defined in the Strava’s gear section due to limitations on the Strava API. Learn more about how to synchronize your Strava account.

Define your bike components

The first time you access ProBikeGarage we’ll sync your activity from Strava, so you should see your bikes with its actual usage in the main window. If you don’t have any bicycle defined yet, follow our Strava integration guide.

You can add components from a catalog of common bike parts with predefined maintenance intervals. If you don’t find a specific item, you can also add it manually.

Finally, select the installation date (you can use the "Since beginning" option for components that originally came with the bike) and press the "save" button at the top of the screen.

That’s it! You have defined your first component. Now you can move around the component’s screen to add more details: custom notes, performed services, bike swaps, more service intervals (alerts), etc. And of course, add more parts to your bike.

Troubleshooting

If you add a component to your bike and the distance and moving hours remain zero, try the following suggestions:

  • First check that your bike distance and hours are updated. If they are zero, you probably should configure the Strava integration first.

  • If your bike usage is correctly updated, then check the installation info. Installation and removal dates are key here, check that dates are correct and there was activity between them.

  • You can also try to remove any "ride tag" from your installation, and check whether the component usage is updated.

If after trying this you are still struggling with setting up your components, you can contact our support team.
