Initial Setup

Ensure Cycliq product is time synced to a mobile device BEFORE you begin your ride.

This is a vital step for the Strava to overlay correctly. If this has not been done we are not able to retrospectively synchronize these times.

To synchronize your Fly’s onboard clock:

  1. Connect the Fly to your mobile phone via the CycliqPlus mobile app
  2. You will see a toast message appear indicating the time has been synced
  3. Disconnect the Fly via the CycliqPlus mobile app

  • Once the Fly6 is turned on it will begin to record.

Recording on the Fly12 CE

  • Power on the Fly12 by pressing and holding down the power button for two seconds.
  • The LED light will illuminate and the power-on chime will be heard.
  • The LED notification on the side of the Fly12 will flash indicating it is recording.

You can customize and adjust your light settings through the CycliqPlus mobile app.

Common Issues

No Activities found

  • The device needs to have been connected to the mobile device before riding to ensure the times are in sync between the video recorded on the Fly and the data recorded with Strava.
  • The way to confirm the times were synchronized is to check the time stamp of the video footage and compare to known timeframe of ride.
  • If this was not the case we are not able to retrospectively synchronize these times and the customer will have to do the ride again.

Syncing Issues

  • In order to ensure that the ride, time or location is in sync your device must be synced with the CycliqPlus mobile app BEFORE beginning your ride.

GPS Interference

  • If you are experiencing interference between your Cycliq device and other GPS device it is usually caused by the two devices being in to close a proximity to one another.
  • Please ensure your Cycliq device and bike computer/GPS are mounted using the Cycliq Duo Mount or a mount with 3cm+ clearance between the two devices.

Limit on Strava API video processing per day

  • Should you come across an error message saying that a limit has been reached on Strava API processing, please exit the app and revisit at a later time or the following day.
  • This is an error which is being reviewed
