I've often wondered about this myself.. It does make some sense to me that \(because your shoulders aren't getting any wider\) as you add 100+mm to your bars, your hands might end up pointing further away from each other. So it follows that a degree or 2 of additional backsweep might suit the new situation better..? I think this is probably more relevant when seated that when out of the saddle in full attack mode. I really like the added control I get from my new 800mm bar but I'm convinced it hurts my wrists more on the climbs.
