Buzz Rack Buffalo 4 Bike Tilting Towball Carrier

The Buffalo is an exceptionally well designed and smart carrier for 4 bikes which fits all tow balls, tilts via a foot operated pedal, includes an integrated cable lock and has well padded bike cradles.



Buffalo, a big strong animal, solid and reliable, just what you need from a tow bar bike carrier. Maybe "Good looking" is pushing this metaphor a bit far but the bike carrier Buffalo really is smart looking, as well as being the best designed and most user friendly bike carrier of its type at any price.

So what's the big deal about Buffalo? It's down to better design, better quality, better safety, overall ease of use. Consider the following:
  • These carriers are supplied ready to go; no assembly work is required.
  • The patented conical tow ball clamp fits onto all 50mm diameter tow balls, even the ones which don't meet BS standards because they have rough casting around the tow ball neck.
  • Fitting is a matter of spinning a hand-turning wheel, a really quick, easy and ergonomically satisfactory thing to do. Turn the key in the tightening wheel and the carrier is then locked to the tow ball. Give a Nyloc nut a tweak (spanner supplied) and then the carrier is held really firmly.
  • It's fine engineering, and strong - the Buffalo has been TÜV approved for 4 bikes to the proposed ISO standard R18-904-4, a standard some way tougher than current requirements.
  • Tilting is a safe single-handed operation, even with the bikes fitted; the carrier tilts far enough for use even on vehicles with vertical tailgates. Push the tilt lever with your foot while supporting the bikes and lower them down - this is safe and easy.
  • The bike frame holders usually need to be adjusted on the support arms first time out - distances between bikes may vary - before being tightened in place (tool supplied). They have properly padded cradles and easily adjusted rubber straps.
  • There's a really neat integrated locking cable; the cable slides into the tubular upright when not in use.
  • The support arms are 28cm apart, centre to centre, a distance which will suit the majority of modern frames; we supply a telescopic cross bar for use with non standard frames.
  • There's a Velcro-fastened sleeve on the upright to protect the first bike, incorporating a tough closed-cell foam pad.
  • Two top quality 300cm safety straps are also provided (buckles sewn not crimped). One of these should be threaded through all the bike wheels to prevent swaying and friction damage - it's up to you to provide any extra protection required - and the other should be passed through all the bike frames and then looped around the carrier.
  • The bike holder arms are easily moved from the horizontal to the vertical - ideal for storage or when the vehicle is parked up.
  • The build quality - tube bending, welding, rust proofing, painting, component quality - is exemplary.!
Please note that if your vehicle has a rear mounted spare wheel this Buffalo rack is not suitable.

Looks a decent enough piece of kit ... though you can't tow and use it at the same time, as you can with e.g. MaxxRaxx.

Not impressed with the Buzz Rack, as you would still have to use a Lighting Board with it, when fully loaded. Also I think cars fitted with the rear mounted strap on bike carriers should be banned from going on motorways, many don't use Lighting Boards, and bikes are often falling of them. A proper towbar mounted rack is the best solution, either clamped to the towbar or fixed to the Flange. We have had the Thule 902 EuroClassic rack for around 15 years, fantastic fold away bike carrier that can take upto 3 bikes, sadly no longer produced. The best of the bunch today, I would argue is the Westfalia BC 60, superb design and a bit like an improved version of the Thule 902. The Westfalia is not cheap at £300 but well worth the money IMHO.
