If you dont need a bike rack with a tilting function to access the trunk, then the BUZZYBEE is the best possible option on the market. This bike rack is very compact and light for a 4 bike carrier with a weight of 15.5kg!
Very compact geometry but fits most bike sizes! Even though it is not assembled, BUZZYBEE 4 is very easy to put together: assemble the wheel support frame to the base using 8 screws, assemble the light support with 2 more screws, install the license plate, slide in the plastic wheel supports, fit the rack to the tow ball with no tools needed and you are ready to go! When you first place the BUZZYBEE 4 on the tow ball it supports itself you can let go of it and it wont fall to the ground. Youll then take the weight again, spin the tightening knob until its tight, and lock it. BUZZRACKs carriers comply with the very exacting standard XPR-18-904-4 and therefore include an anti-sway tensioner; this has an integrated handle and 2 or 3 turns are usually sufficient.The video below shows the fitting to the car and the installation of bikes. The BUZZYBEE 4 comes with a 7 pin lighting system.
The wheel holders will accommodate all wheelbases, even small childrens bikes. You can reverse the wheel supports for the really small bikes. The long wheel rubber-padded wheel straps hold tyres up to 3.25 wide; pull on them to tighten, and use the quick release to loosen. The BUZZYBEE 4 is entirely suitable for carbon frame bikes; the rubber bike frame pads and high resistance straps hold any type of tube firmly but gently. The maximum permitted load is 60kg, with no bike weighing more than 20kg.
Electric bikes up to 20kg may be carried, although the BUZZYBEE series is not optimised for e-bikes (see E-Scorpion for e-bikes); the down tube size is limited to 75mm diameter (3); whatever bikes you have, always load the heaviest bikes nearest to the car. Other features and basic specifications.
The patented conical fitting fits to all tow balls, even to the bolt-on tow balls we see occasionally that do not meet standards for neck length or ball diameter. A reminder that it locks to the tow ball. The BUZZYBEE 4 sits high on the tow ball, well clear of speed bumps and other hazards such as steep ferry ramps.
Dimensions: 88cm wide x 91cm deep (measured from the centre of the tow ball to the outside edge of the number plate holder). The build quality tube bending, welding, rust proofing, painting, component quality, is exemplary. The whole carrier looks and feels like the class act it is. All tools you might need are provided.
