There are several brands now that make adult Bikes with an adjustable reach. (By using offset headet cups).
This would be a great feature on kids bikes.

The other thing that has become available on adult bikes is interchangeable dropouts or adjustable length drop outs. Very common on adult bikes now is the adjustable shock mount.

Luckily, with offset busing and angle adjust headsets, you can do some of these things after market.

Are there headsets that increase reach these days without need a larger head tube like flow?

Flow had it all figured out but never made the bigger bikes. A 24/26 with dialed geo that could truly grow up front and in back would have been money with a nice and light spec.

Yes, A 44mm headtube with work, but you will have an external headset. You just don’t get quite as much adjustment as with the special headtube
