Buzz Rack Buzzy Bee Platform Hitch Bike Rack
The Buzz Rack Buzzy Bee H is a simple, strong, and secure hitch mounted platform bike rack offering excellent value for money.
The Buzzy Bee offers convenient mounting, basic functions, and compact storage. The rubber pad provides a good solution for mounting carbon frames as it does not apply pressure to the carbon tubes.
