No steering After Coffee Break (Kickr Bike) [1.39]

After each use of Coffee Break steering no longer functions or the additional buttons for Power up and U turn (Kickr Bike) … pairing again during ride does not resolve it… So drafting is problematic and reliant on how pack pushes you left or right…which often means you are without draft or poor draft :tired_face:

Same issue here. This makes coffee break utterly annoying and useless.


HOT NEW WEIRDNESS… during pace partner ride was able to steer (like crazy, like full time job) but then activated the new Coffee Break for a nature break (worked great!) and when I got back to riding… no steering or buttons working. Still shifted fine. V1 bike, latest firmware, appleTV


Identical issues here Alister. I also rebooted and then the Power Up button would instead of releasing the PU it would pull up the monitors Icon function bar at the bottom of the screen. I did not see this bug listed in the latest fix.

A few rides back the sync tag for steering failed. Everything else showed sync up. But not steering. But when I got on my free ride my steering worked as usual. Same with PP rides. Today I rode with a PP. Steering was not working. Afterward I briefly tried a free ride just to see if steering worked there. No steering there either. I have no idea what the issue is. I don’t know which version of Kickr Bike that I have. Bought it new in Oct. 2021. I’ve done all the updates for Zwift and Wahoo. Just have no idea why steering is not working.

All buttons on bike worked fine. Then 5/20 used coffee stop and NO buttons on kickr bike work in any setting, any ride since then - steering, power up, uturn all broken

Thanks Brad, I’ve let the team know.


Thank you James, i have the same issue on my KickrBike after using the coffee stop feature. No steering, power ups or Uturn

Same issue here, pretty annoying

Same issue

Additional issue… beyond coffee “break” physical buttons no longer working. Once event (Route) ends, you are unable to navigate even on the companion app (junction options don’t appear) can only continue riding on the original assigned route. This only occurs after coffee break is used! These glitches are only cleared after a restart of Zwift app on Apple TV. I have done second ride without restart of Zwift app and Kickr Bike buttons still don’t function (bike was restarted and reconnected)

Are you sure that they worked well before your coffee break? because lots of kickr bike users are complaining about not working buttons in general

Hi Karin, Thanks for your input as to others having issues with Kickr Bike buttons… But I can assure you that this is Zwift Coffee break related… Before my original post… I had verified and deliberately tested and was able to reproduced the issue on 4 separate rides by the use of Coffee Break… I have continued to test beyond v1.39 (v1.40 & v1.41) This issue is unchanged… All other rides without the use of coffee break have not been affected… and the bike works perfectly on them… I’m riding about 20 rides per week, and only when I test/try coffee break this happens… Regards Alister
