Yakima is recalling about 7,000 bicycle racks used on vehicles with rear-door spare tires. According to documents posted on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website the mounting bolts can break and the bikes can fall from the vehicles and cause a hazard. The recall affects SpareTime two-bike racks made from November 1, 2011 through October 30, 2012. The manufacture date is printed on a white label on the rack’s mounting plate. Yakima says that only bolts without markings on the heads are affected by the recall. Yakima says it found the problem after getting complaints from two customers. It’s asking dealers for a list of buyers and says it will send new mounting bolts free of charge. According to Yakima, the problem hasn’t caused any injuries. Customers can call Yakima at (888) 925-4621.
