Buzz Runner 3 bike rack

At last here is a wheel support rack that not only looks great but is a pleasure to use, is intelligently designed by people who use bike racks regularly and care about the finer details, is superbly engineered and finished, and is undoubted value for money.

What's the big deal about the BuzzRunner 3? Fundamentally it's down to design, safety, quality, and ease of use. Consider the following:
  • It's supplied almost fully assembled; minimum work is required.
  • It's the right shape for storing in the boot when not in use.
  • It fits to all BS standard tow balls with an easy "first time out only" adjustment system. If you're unfortunate enough to have a bolt on tow ball that's not made to BS standard - the ball will be the correct diameter but insufficient material will have been milled off the neck - we can supply an alternative tow ball, listed below. AL-KO tow balls are not cheap and you'll probably find a much cheaper tow ball at your local accessory shop.
  • The BuzzRunner is particularly well balanced and therefore you can walk it onto the tow ball without it bumping on your shins.
    Fitting is simple and, above all, fast; place the carrier on the tow ball and lift the lever, the ergonomically easy thing to do, with nothing to tighten or turn.
  • The BuzzRunner 3 is genuinely easy to tilt, well balanced during the tilting phase, and tilts far enough for use even on vehicles with vertical tailgates.
  • It sits high on the tow ball, well clear of speed bumps and other hazards such as steep ferry ramps.
  • The wheel holders, much more robust than we've seen elsewhere, will slide in and out and will accommodate all wheelbases, even very small children's bikes if you turn the wheel holders through 180º.
  • The wheel holders include tough and easily adjusted wheel straps which are long enough to hold the biggest rims we've found.
  • The outer two bike holders have locks, and the carrier also locks to the tow ball with a strong metal in metal lock.
  • Flick up a couple of cam levers and the carrier folds flat for easier storage.
  • All parts are replaceable if e.g. someone forgets that a tow bar carrier is fitted and reverses into a wall - which happens!
  • Dimensions = 94.5cm wide by 74.0cm deep (measured from the centre of the tow ball mount to the outside edge of the number plate holder).
  • Weight = 16.0kg.
  • BuzzRunners are supplied with UK standard 3 function lights and a 7 pin plug,
  • The build quality - tube bending, welding, rust proofing, painting, component quality, is exemplary. All tools you might need are provided.
  • It's TÜV approved to the proposed ISO standard R18-904-4, a standard some way tougher than current requirements.
