Snow outside today, looking forward to a long ride on Swift. Performed the automatic update for Swift and logged in. Six laps in, making the climb and the power displayed goes to 0 and no resistance on the Kickr trainer :-(. I pause hoping that the power will correct itself when pedaling again. No go - the power is out of sync with the terrain :-(. I realize this is a known issue, but what was different on the ride today is when I logged back in to start a new ride, the power was still out of sync! All the previous times I’ve experienced this issue, logging back in fixed the problem.
My setup hasn’t changed ever since installing Swift except that I’ve attached the Ant+ receiver to an extension cable. Bike and computer are in the basement with no cell phone or other devices nearby except of course for the computer running Zwift. Can’t imagine it would be an interference issue. The extension cable seemed to fix the power issue for me, but then the issue today.
I don’t know when the power dropout issue occurs for others, but for me it happens most times when I’m near another rider or bot. On the ride today everything was going well until another rider I passed sprinted up to my wheel on the climb. Then my power dropped to 0 and the other rider rode on by. I don’t know if the other rider experienced the same issue.
I wish I could help isolate the problem and help the folks at Zwift resolve it. This really is the only issue I have with the program and have enjoyed training with Zwift immensely. I now actually look forward to riding indoors!
