Aberhallo extender-type stem but longer, i.e. 60 or 65mm?

Anyone seen an extender stem that's a bit longer than the 55mm Aberhallo? I've seen a 'GUB' stem on ebay that's also 55mm and a shorter 'Double Aviation Stem' (goofy translation, 50mm) and nothing else.

probably not as the handlebar would rotate too easy when the longer leverage would put double the force on the rotation....
just my guess

I expect if you get the line of credit, the manufacturers on TW are eager to make and ship anything ..

hundreds? you have to ask minimums to recover tooling costs..

UFB project prototype had a QR clamp scheme to make bar reach and rise into a fast adjustment.
