I think you're missing what upsweep and backsweep are actually doing to your wrists. Have you seen the [article about ugly grips by uncle dave](https://nsmb.com/articles/beauty-stupid-looking-grips/)? There was an image in there trying to show how and why you might want to support your palms more. Anyway; in that picture: Try to see what backsweep and upsweep do, isolated from each other, and it could start to make more sense. Maybe try on an SZ Curlbar in the gym? \[I think:\] Upsweep for example helps with "elbows out", too much upsweep though will raise your shoulders and give you an aching neck and a bad position. The wider the bar OR the more stretched out on your bike you sit(elbow extension) the more backsweep you'd use. As soon as your grips are more than shoulderwidth apart your hands/wrists "want" backsweep as they generally move on a circular path around your shoulder joints.
