Tandem bike rack University of Nottingham student project

From Brady Haran's Periodic Videos blog:

This bike rack was made extra long and easy to use for transporting on top of a car. It has some mechanisms that make it easy to load a bike on and off. The group made it for a student project/assignment, and they also crash tested it.

I think some of the mechanisms are a more complex than was needed, but it seems that they were purposefully added so that they would fulfill a requirement. I enjoy seeing how and what they were testing with the crash tests.
