Where can I find some 22.2mm diameter road handlebars?girchygirchy

I'm turning my old mt bike into some sort of a road bike, and would really like to change out the wide-ass flat bars for some drop bars. The problem is, it uses a strange triangular stem (see picture), which only accepts 22.2 diameter bars. Of which I can't seem to find any.

So, any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

might be time for a new stemlaffeaux

According to Sheldon Brown, 22.2 mm (or 7/8") is the BMX standard. The chances of finding a BMX drop bar seem pretty small. You'll need to replace the stem along with the bar in order to make a drop bar work.
