White tron bike [July 2021] [1.15.0]

Hi all, in one of my rides this week I saw a white glowing tron bike passing by me, as far as i know the zwift color bar on all bikes cannot get to that kind of color… any thoughts to what was this guy doing?

Maybe they were on a really old game version and it was still in black and white …

I was on a group ride yesterday evening (Makuri Islands) and one of the participants asked if we were all seeing white trons like he was. I wasn’t – and don’t think anyone else piped up to say that they did – but I have often seen black tron wheels when everyone else on a ride was seeing the correct colours.
Am pretty confident that this person yesterday had already installed the latest update, but cannot confirm.
The sheer variety of bugs experienced by different individuals at the moment would almost be impressive, if it wasn’t so depressing…

I wish they would add black and white to the color fader.

In yesterday´s TV group ride in London all tron bikes had the same glowing WHITE wheels (the frames were coloured as usual):

AppleTV 4k. Never seen this before.

Thanks all for flagging this up. I’ve created a ticket for the team here to investigate.

Yes, it was me. I’m on the latest update, on Apple TV 4K.
Here are three of us together with white Tron wheels.

Looks quite smart that, wish it was a genuine option.

Could have been me too - I raised it on the DIRT Watts Up ride and those of us on Apple TVs were experiencing it. I don’t think it’s actually white - I think it’s actually that the bright light sources have just blown out so they all appear white. I say this because you can see the colours of the Tron bikes in profile, just not on the effort sensitive bits (ie the wheels and seatpost).
My eagle-eyed son also noted that the banners in the starting pens were all blown-out too (solid bright white) which is why I think it’s bright light sources in general - not just Tron colours.

Thanks Shuji - please note that it’s not just the Tron bikes on the ATV 4Ks - there’s something wrong with the banners too.

This was also present on Tuesday on Apple TV when I did the lunchtime (UK) Classics ride - I think that was pre-update being released…

This bug was also in the previous (June 2021) update. Screenshot from June 19,2021
Both my brother and myself had the bug on our ATV 4K’s. It was random and did not occur on every ride.
We dubbed it the “Ghost Tron”

Thanks for that info. Screenshots are always appreciated.

So far, everyone’s reporting this happened on an Apple TV 4k. Is this happening to anyone who’s using some other OS platform?

In contrast to wednesday’s group ride the tron wheels are back to normal today (free ride, AppleTV 4k), in London, Yorkshire and Watopia. iPhone is also fine. Strange.

I’ve only seen it on the Apple TV 4K. As others have said, even then it’s not every time - I didn’t see it last night. But today I was riding on the mac and my son on the Apple TV - you can see the difference. No Tron bikes (as all on the Aethos, but please note the banners in the pens on the TV vs the laptop…

I’ve experienced the White Concept wheel bug for a month. ATV appliance. I removed and reinstalled Zwift once. It’s intermittent and occurs about every 12th ride.
I’ve also stoped asking for Zwift support. My list of zwift verified bugs is long and none are fixed. Not wasting my time if zwift can’t provide a list of user reported bugs they verified and with a target resolution date. Good way to keep support employees busy it would seem but total wast of users time, reporting the same defect over and over again. Some bugs like meetup replication of users and Sprint doing odd stuff is bad. Heck, just in the last few weeks, the sprint is so bad even the results list just shows only yourself.

White tron bikes look sick.
Please keep this colour
