BUZZ RACK make great bike racks that are strong, secure and innovative. These are products you can confidently rely on for your adventures.

So what's the big deal with the BUZZ RACK Spark? 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 tow balls with an easy "first time out only" adjustment system.
  • 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 BUZZ RACK Spark is genuinely easy to tilt, well balanced during the tilting phase. The tilt function is accessed at the front of the carrier so it's easy to get to, unlike many other bike carriers.
  • 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 straps are tough, easily adjusted and fit tyres up to 2.8 inches. A longer strap is available separately if you have semi-fat tyres - see below. A fat tyres adapter is also available for wheels up to 4.6".
  • Both bike holders have locks, and the carrier also locks to the tow ball with a robust 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: 96cm wide by 61cm deep (measured from the centre of the tow ball mount to the outside edge of the number plate holder).
  • Weight: 17.5kg.
  • The BUZZ RACK Spark comes with a 5 function 13 pin lighting system, with UK compliant fog lights, i.e. the fog light is on the right hand side / offside. An adapter is available if you have a 7 pin socket.
  • 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 ISO standard R15264-4, a standard some way tougher than current requirements.
  • We also think it looks great!

You'll need a lighting adapter if your vehicle has a standard UK style 7 pin socket - buy this rack from us this season and we'll give you this for free, saving up to £20 at typical prices!

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

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.

For most UK addresses, the charge for our Standard two to four day service is £6.50 (£11.50 for orders including a roof box) and our charge for Express Delivery (one or two days) is £9.50 (£14.50 for orders involving a roof box). AutoSock, shoe chains, RUD i-Sock, and small spare parts, are charged £3.95 (Royal Mail Tracked), £4.95 (Royal Mail Express Tracked) or £5.95 (courier, usually Express Delivery).

There are different charges for any delivery including a sea crossing, and deliveries to Skye - we will contact you with a quote on receipt of order.

Orders for Express Delivery need to be received by 2pm.

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 should be delivered on the Monday or Tuesday, Express Delivery orders placed on a Saturday should be delivered on the Tuesday or Wednesday.

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’.  Many Express Delivery orders will arrive on the next working day, but some will arrive on the second working day, or be split between these two 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".
