Honestly I don't know. I do remember Rock Shox made the "RUBY" I think a couple of years ago for touring bikes and rough roads. I don't know if they're still in production.
I DO know that 29inchers are becoming more popular and are basically mt bikes with 700c wheels. That means that a few companies are starting to make them. I know Marzocchi makes on that comes on the Gary Fisher 29'ers.
I don't know how this will work on a road bike regarding geometry. I have a feeling it'll slacken the steering head tube angle by a degree or more and may make the bike handle much slower.
I'd check out www.fisherbikes.com
