I know Thomson do but I don't want to spend that kind of cash. I've got a 350cm one but I'm at the minimum insertion point and as it's a scandium frame I'd like a bit more than 10cm in the frame.

Easton used to make some, don't know if they still do (I had a 450mm EA70). Think Kore do some longer ones too.

I decided to celebrate selling my Bombers by firing the money right away on a decent one. Bizarrely if I put it all the way down the seat tube there'll still be 100mm sticking out the top!
