Freestanding vertical ebike stand?

People of EBR, I know there's a bit of scattered discussion about this here and there, but I'm after a recommendation. I keep my bikes in my study but it's getting crowded with my commuter and eMTB, plus my partners bike. Does anyone have a recommendation of a reasonably sturdy ebike-capable vertical bike stand? The smaller footprint of vertical storage will help free up a lot of room. I'm also after something freestanding as I don't want to drill into the walls. One of my bikes has fenders that reach almost to the rear axle, the other has 2.5" wheels up back. The heaviest bike weighs in at 26kg/57lbs. From what I've seen the fenders, weight and tyre width knock out most of the options. Anyone using anything that would tick these boxes?

Thanks for the suggestions fellas.

The first is horizontal only. Rome's first Amazon image is the kind of storage I'm after but that model is 20kg and 2.4" max. The tyre may fit but the weight rules it.

After extensive searching there may not actually be a product out there for me. Did someone say killer kickstarter idea?

I've looked at this one a few times. Good price, good reviews and has a weight capacity of 66 pounds, 30 kg.

I had a close look at that one. It'd work fine for my partners bike. The fenders on my Explore and the 49.5" wheelbase on my e160 knock it out of contention for those two.

Sigh, I think I'm going to have to conceded the product I'm after doesn't exist. I swear - this is how people start their own companies. I can see the design in my head, I just don't have the engineering smarts to make it happen.

I was going to suggest this one from Bike Stow in the UK but it likely won’t accommodate rear fenders.

Not as eloquent but a cheaper version would be one that anyone could cobble together from 2 x 4s. You could even make it mobile by installing wheels on the bottom. It would do in a pinch until you make your millions on that Kickstarter project. 👍
