At least if you want them close together like the second picture. I'd hate to have to undo my stem and turn my handlebars sideways every time I rode in order to fit my bikes on the rack! Of course, that's only if you want them close together like in the second picture...
it's not the stem, it's the forkcyclopathic

look careful fork clamp mounted vertically on wall, very neat.

The clamps are mounted horizontally as in the first picture. The stems are turned. There's no reason the clamps couldn't be mounted vertically and the bikes should hang as in the second picture, but that's not how they did it.

I'VE BEEN MOUNTING SOME OF MY BIKES THAT WAY TO SAVE SPACE FOR A FEW YEARS NOW. THERE HAVE BEEN FORK MOUNTS ON THE MARKET FOR QUITE A WHILE. WORKS GOOD.

It seems to me, you'd have to mount the clamp horizontally to get the rear wheel against the wall.

I always mount them horizontaly. I think that I would just stagger the heights if I didn't have room for the bars. I wouldn't loosen the stem after evry ride.
Wow, this is a long discussion.Matno

I just thought it was an odd way to advertise. I think staggering the heights would be the easiest solution by far. However, I wouldn't want to have to take off my front wheel after every ride any more than I would want to loosen my stem... My $8 horizontal rack from Home Depot seems to be just the ticket! (If I wanted my bikes mounted vertically, I'd just get a hook for the front wheel. Used to do that in college. Much easier).
