Default Do 13.2 inch 3x125 frames actually exist?

I'm partial to 13.2 for the stability but also for personal tradition. Every speed frame I've ever owned has been 13.2. As one with long legs and big feet, it always seemed like the right plan.

But I'm having trouble finding a long frame in 3x125. Clearly, there are fewer manufacturers participating in this generation. Cado Motus has a 13.0 frame but then their online shop shows "out of stock". No one else seems to have it either. I haven't found another manufacturer that claims to make a frame longer than 13.0 inches.

The trend seems to be toward frames even shorter than 12.8. This is somewhat surprising. I would have thought the greater deck height would have people clamoring for more stability.
