Alan seat post?

Liking the looks of Alan frames I purchased a plain Al frame in a size 58cm, which is a bit small for me. On other bikes I can just purchase a long MTB seat post and raise the seat to suit, but not thinking about it the Alan has a 25mm seat post and I can't find a seat post that I feel will allow me enough height and still get enough post into the seat tube. Can anyone give me suggestions.

Here is straight no clamp one https://www.ebay.com/itm/XLC-Aluminum...item564fbb9594

And here is one with a clamp 400mm long https://www.ebay.com/itm/BBB-BSP20-Sk...item5d2e0dec83

Personally I am not sure I would want to cruise around on a too smallish frame with extra 25.0 post sticking out. 26.8 I have done, but onlt an extra cm or two, but 25.0 might be noodly

Thanks Bg, I searched ebay and didn't find anything like that, go figure. A friend of mine just emailed me a link to a Kalloy post with the setback I need that is 25.0 x 350, solves that dilemma.
