BUZZ RACK Eazzy 2 bike folding and tilting rack no. BRP722

RRP: 317.50
Code: BRP722

The Eazzy 2 was new for summer 2019; colleagues here have been using the Eazzy racks for holidays and our consensus is that they're way better than any mid-market racks we know about.

The BUZZ RACK Eazzy 2 is a really well designed, well engineered piece of kit; smart, sophisticated and very good value for money.

Basic ergonomics

Easy! The Eazzy 2 is very easy to fold which makes for easy lifting, easy carrying, easy fitting, easy storage in the car boot when you are out for a ride; we didn't invent the Eazzy name, but it's appropriate!

Folds to store in the car This is really useful, because damage to tow bar carriers in car parks from other vehicles can be an issue. A tow bar carrier will almost certainly make your car much too long for a standard car parking space.

More detail about folding Because the two wheel support trays fold into the bike holder uprights (there are straps to hold them closed) the Eazzy 2 is very easy to carry around, easy to fit and remove, and easy to store. The metal parts are steel, not aluminium, but because it's a vertical 2-handed lift it feels surprisingly light, and there should be no strain on your back when moving it and fitting it.

Key features of the Eazzy 2

Assembly: The Eazzy 2 is supplied fully assembled, except for the lights which are attached with only 1 screw each side (which makes these lights particularly easy to replace if damaged), and there's 1 bolt for the number plate holder - all fittings and a tool are supplied.

Fitting to the car: You fit the Eazzy 2 in its folded state, which leaves you with all the space you need to work on the tow ball fitting system. When you first place it on the tow ball it supports itself - you can let go of it and it won't fall to the ground. You'll then take the weight again, spin the tightening wheel until it's tight, and lock it. BUZZ RACK's 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 videos (see the 'fitting instructions' tab) show the initial assembly, and also fitting - both are well worth watching.

Lighting system: The Eazzy 2 comes with a 13 pin lighting system, including a reversing light and UK compliant fog lights (the fog light is on the right hand side). A 13 pin to 7 pin adapter is included.

Tilting: Tilting is easy, and is very well balanced even with a full load. The Eazzy 2 sits quite high on the tow ball, and the tilt function is optimised to prevent the lights from hitting the road surface, while still using the weight of the bikes to help bring the bike platform back to the level again in a controlled way. But this geometry doesn't allow for vertical tailgates to be opened - the only tow bar carriers we know about that are suitable for these vehicles, e.g. VW Transporter T5 and T6, and MPVs such as the Vauxhall Zafira and Ford Galaxy, are the Atera STRADA DL3 (maximum 4 bikes) and the Atera Genio Pro (maximum 3 bikes).

Carrying bikes

  • The wheel holders will accommodate most wheelbases, even small children's 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 Eazzy 2 is entirely suitable for carbon frame bikes; the rubber-padded bike frame cradles rotate 360 degrees and, again using rubber-padded straps, they hold any type of tube firmly but gently. Longer frame straps are available.
  • The maximum permitted load is 40kg, with no bike weighing more than 20kg
  • Electric bikes up to 20kg may be carried, although the Eazzy series is not optimised for e-bikes (see E-Scorpion for e-bikes); whatever bikes you have, always load the heaviest bikes nearest to the car
  • There is a built in locking cable to secure your bikes; as usual with cable locks, it's a deterrent only - you need to pay serious money for any cable lock that will withstand bolt cutters and, ideally, also loop it through your vehicle's towing hook.

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 Eazzy 2 sits high on the tow ball, well clear of speed bumps and other hazards such as steep ferry ramps.
  • Dimensions: 112cm wide x 58cm deep (measured from the centre of the tow ball to the outside edge of the number plate holder). 24cm wide when folded.
  • Weight: 11.6kg
  • 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.
  • All parts are replaceable if e.g. someone forgets that a tow bar carrier is fitted and reverses into a wall - which happens!
  • There's a full spares programme; we will provide this information on a Spares tab very soon.

Exchange scheme: Tow bar carriers are part of our 90 day exchange scheme - see the tab for details - so you can order without financial risk..

BUZZ RACK is manufactured by King Rack of Taiwan, a specialist bike sector engineering company since 1996. Their factory is state of the art, with much of their production being tube bending, specialist welding and finishing for well known bicycle and car rack brands.

Technical specifications:

Max number of bikes: 2

Fits bolt on tow ball: yes

Fits swan neck / detachable tow ball: yes

Dimensions: 112 (w) x 57.5 (d) x 70 (h) cm (measured from the centre of the tow ball mount to the outside edge of the number plate holder)

Weight: 11.6kg

Max load capacity: 40kg

Max weight per bike: 20kg

Distance between bikes: 28cm

Fits wheelbases: 71-114cm

Fits with a spare wheel: On some vehicles but usually as a one bike carrier. If you have a rear spare wheel that sticks out beyond the centre of the tow ball, its likely that this will occupy the first bike space, and may even prevent the bike carrier being fitted at all. If you have a bolt on tow ball, it may be possible to fit a spacer plate of up to 50mm to move the tow ball centre 50mm further from the car. If your tow ball sticks out beyond the rear spare wheel then you will probably have no problems in fitting this carrier.

Guarantee: 3 years

Useful information:

The maximum permitted load you can carry is also determined by your nose weight; you will need to check you dont exceed this before using any tow ball mounted bike carrier.

Requires 65mm clearance from centre of tow ball to rear of vehicle.

Deciding which bike carriers to buy is not always easy, especially as you may not have had experience of using bike carriers before. We hope that our buying guides provide useful guidance about which bike carrier 'strategy' will be most appropriate for your circumstances, as well as highlighting the best features of particular models. We also have troubleshooting FAQs - for example, some customers struggle at first to fit four bikes onto a tow ball carrier, and wonder whether a different carrier would allow the bikes to be spaced wider apart. (It won't, but we have some good tips which make bike fitting much easier.)

Our bike carriers Exchange Scheme covers roof mounting and tow ball mounting bike carriers only. Rear door mounting / strap on carriers are not included, and nor are roof bars. It allows you to exchange within 90 days of invoice date. Most exchanges are for roof mounting upgrades, or are tow ball carriers with very basic tilting systems being exchanged for easy to use sliding / tilting carriers.

These are the rules of the bike carriers Exchange Scheme:

  • You are allowed one exchange only.
  • The original equipment must be in "as new" condition, subject only to fair wear and tear.
  • The replacement items must be different models from the originals.
  • The replacement items must not be part of a package deal or be from our Bargains section.
  • Roof bars are never part of the Exchange Scheme.

This is how the exchange scheme works:

  • We charge in full for the replacement items, including the appropriate carriage charge and a charge for any packaging needed for the return of the originals.
  • We pay the return carriage costs.
  • When the originals arrive back here we refund you for their invoice value, but you won't get back more than the invoice value of the replacements. In other words, if the replacements are cheaper than the originals we won't be giving you "extra cash back".

Please note: we can only collect items from mainland UK.

Delivery charges and arrangements:

We charge a contribution towards delivery costs, depending on what you order, where you live, and how quickly you want the goods.

These are our standard charges; there are usually surcharges for all offshore destinations and some remote postcodes - for details please see our delivery information page.

Delivery FAQs

When will my order arrive?
There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays, except for postable items where Royal Mail has a Saturday delivery. Express Delivery orders placed on a Friday (before 1pm) should be delivered on the Monday or Tuesday, Express Delivery orders placed on a Saturday or Sunday should be delivered on the Tuesday or Wednesday. The arrangements for Very Heavy Items are different and are shown above.

What about Next Working Day delivery?
We have offered a reliable Next Working Day service for well over 20 years but, due to the pressure on the couriers caused by the coronavirus crisis and the huge increase in online shopping, we can no longer be confident about the delivery date, which is why we now call the service Express delivery. Most Express delivery orders will arrive on the next or second working day, but some will arrive on the second or third working day, or be split between these days. So-called split deliveries happen when the couriers do not have enough trailer space for everything that should be moved around the UK, so they will load what they can and leave the rest for the next trailer.

Is my delivery day guaranteed?
No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. As well as split deliveries, all courier companies occasionally have the same transport problems as can happen to everyone else, including snow blocked roads, closed roads, traffic jams, mechanical breakdown, an inability to find the delivery address, or to gain access to it if, for example, it's in a block of flats. We work with some of the best couriers in the business, and overall they provide an outstanding service.

Do I need to be at home?
We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver to an address which suits you this does not need to be your home address. Goods can usually be left without signature - we prefer this with roof boxes. There's a "Special Delivery Instructions" box in the checkout area where we'll ask you to choose a typical instruction and then amend it to suit your particular requirements.

Payment options:

We take the following cards, and also PayPal. Please note that the entry on your card statement will be from "The Roof Box Company".

Bike carriers with 7 pin plugs

Wheel support bike carriers which are supplied with 7 pin plugs usually only include rear lights, brake lights and indicator lights, which is why they are often called 3 function lights.

Unusually, Thule bike carriers with 7 pin plugs also include a fog light; this works when plugged into 7 pin electrics, but it does not work when plugged into 13 pin electrics via an adapter.

Bike carriers with 13 pin plugs

Bike carriers which are supplied with 13 pin plugs include a fog light and reversing light, as well as rear lights, brake lights and indicator lights which is why they are often called 5 function lights.

If these are plugged into 13 pin electrics then all 5 functions will work.

If they are plugged into 7 pin electrics via an adapter then the fog light should work, but the reversing light on the bike carrier will not work.

Please note

These notes assume that your tow bar electrics have been wired correctly!

Tow bar wiring in the digital age is much more complicated than it used to be when everything was analogue. Our experience is that if you are having lighting problems, e.g. a fog light does not work in 7 pin tow bar electrics, the problem is much more likely to be caused by the wiring, not by a dud bulb in the bike carrier.
