Bummer, sorry about the brake issue! That had to be frustrating for a brand new bike, even if it was solvable in the end.

I think you're right about the handlebar width affecting twitcheyness. I rode a 57cm Salsa Vaya this past weekend, and riding on the hoods (compared to the flared drops) felt pretty twitchy, despite it being a fairly heavy steel bike. The Diverge and Checkpoint I also tested felt a lot more "on rails" so to speak, despite being smaller bikes (56 & 54 respectively) and presumably having less wide bars.
