I'm not sure that will help either, generally wider for more aggressive stance on the bike. Unless, you have wider shoulders. You won't know if the fitting really worked until you take it back out for another 2hr plus ride.
Also, it seems that you should enough extra cable for an extra 4mm, but if not, you might need new ones. Technically they are universal when new, but you cut them down (both the housing and cable) to fit the bike. The generic cable/housing combos are so long you cut tons off them. Good news, they are cheap. You may want a cable cutter tool (20-40$), but Dremel's also work fine with a reinforced emory (sp?) wheel.
