Why not look at some 'dirt drops' there's a good few out there. You may need to change your brake leers to suit and as mentioned a new stem too.
Drops are a pretty much none starter as I'm running hydrolic disc brakes, I know there are work arounds but I don't think the cost / effort is worth the benifit.
Normal length tri bars will be faaaar too long when combined with an mtb length top tube/riding position
That is an extremely good point and one I'd over looked
You could look at some of the dinky clip ons that the triathletes have taken to using for bunch riding.
Or get a cheap pair and trim the extensions down.
That's a good idea, I'll look out for some
