Last fall when I was still riding my Trek 520 I was in an LBS asking this very question, since I have broad shoulders and was feeling a little cramped in the chest when riding. The roadie salesman, whose shoulders and arms included are narrow enough to floss with, furrows his brow, pulls out a measuring tape, measures my shoulders, and says, "yeah, we could probably do 2 cm wider for you over the standard bar." LOL. I solved the problem entirely with a better bicycle.
