If you mean the wheel quick release...KCNC is now making in limited runs a skewer set with a 230 mm rear one. We worked with them on this design for the Trek EX FS with ABP that also use a longer rear skewer.
If your requirements fall between a regular one and this one you could always tap some treads and cut the excess...this is what we did with a Top Fuel 9.9 as they too use a rear skewer in between the Trek EXs and the normal MTB rear skewer.

KCNC also have a 5mm longer one coming out around now. clee cycles are sending us replacements as our originals were just a bit too short.

Currently, until I get them I'm running the standard roval ones.

It's a bit longer than 5 mm...we already have the first sets here. The ended up too long for the Trek EXs but that can be easily fix.

I use a BBB http://www.bbbparts.com/quickreleases_f ... -bqr04.php thats works fine - its also light and strong being a cromoly skewer.

I cans also measure my Ti tune to see, biut I assume they work has they did on my previous epic

But if you use the stock Bontrager axle you end up with the heavy axle since it's not the KCNC Ti....

I just run standard Tune skewers in my 09 Epic, no problem at all.

A road length skewer probably won't work, but can't see the issue with any normal skewers.
