Much like the bike shelf of yesteryear, this one will likely not be very effective for bikes with a step-through frame (traditionally women's bikes, though some in the medical community insist that all cyclists should switch to such a frame).

Form over function, I suppose. I still like the vertical bike mount, as its only requirement is that your bike have wheels.

Perhaps they would work, but not as well. This one is not only nicer to look at, but the design makes mounting the bike seem much easier (no lifting over a big hook, just straight up and over).

Here's a nifty Rubbermaid one for $14.56.

M-m-m-m . . . would a coated, or rubber, or vinyl, or plastic garden hose hanger do the job, for less money?
