Strava question

A few weeks ago I upgraded to premium member. Now the question: I was riding Wawayanda and met a few riders. Went home and checked Strava and my "flybys" to see who they might have been. Nothing came up in my "flybys" so I figured they didn't Strava. Later in the day I checked out @jimf on Strava and there I was in his "flyby". Weird! I went back to my Strava "flyby" and Jim still isn't in mine, but I'm still in his. Wassup? Any ideas if I have to change any settings?

There seems to be sync issues with flyby as well. For example, when I ride with @clarkenstein, I use a garmin and he uses his phone. Even tho we stay together, flyby shows me blowing him away. Or maybe that's the reality? :shrug:

i notice this too and i have a theory. i have a time issue with my iSuck, i mean iPhone. believe it or not, my clock is slow. i can synchronize, and it doesn't matter, it eventually falls off the time because it runs slow. i notice i am always behind everyone in flyby, by a large margin.

i'm sure the app picks up time as a data point, so if my clock is off, i won't be near you. so if your clock says its 11:04 when you ride by an intersection, and my clock says its 11:05, i'll be behind even if we are side by side.

that's my theory at least.

i'm always way behind in flyby even when i know i was leading a part of a ride with peeps. i'm curious what happens when my contract is up and i can drop the apple and pick up something different.

it is them, not you ;)
look under Settings/Privacy. I am guessing you have "Who can see your activity on Strava Labs Flyby?" to "Everyone" and they have it set to "Nobody". SO you can;t see them unless they change their settings
Thanks, I'm sure that's the answer I hadn't thought of.

Dave let his daughter play with the phone around christmas time. She likes to listen
to the holiday play list, and is just learning the symbols/gestures to control it. She is also
learning to read - and the words date/time are ones she knows. There you have it.
just a kid being cute.

i also find 800 selfies, random videos of myself being filmed when i didn't know it, and texts sent to my wife that are all emojis. my 5 year old can use storage and data like its her job.

my son has figured out website addresses... that scares me.
