Mark,

If don't need anything too fancy, you can make your own. Saw through a straight seatpost near the bottom, on a diagonal (I've done this with a steel post, but I expect it would also work with an aluminum post) and file the cut edges smooth. Cut a piece of threaded rod to the appropriate length, add a suitable washer with a nut and locknut at the bottom and a pair of nuts jammed together with some Loctite at the top to make a bolt head, and it all works like a quill stem with a wedge.

Best,
