Hitch Mounted Bicycle Rack May Pose Serious Hazard

Serious design flaws with the Thule T2 hitch-mounted bicycle rack have been documented. Though neither Thule nor the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission have announced a recall, there is increasing buzz in the biking community about the danger posed by these racks. Check out the video below for a concise demonstration of a problem which -- if it has not already -- could cost someone their life. (As of this morning this product is still being sold by various retailers.)
