Get your shoulders measured. Mine are 49cm, so basically very few bars are even made that can handle me.

Salsa Bell Laps come in 46cm.
Salsa Short & Shallow come in 46cm.
Nitto Noodles come in 48cm.

No need to compromise on width.

just thought i'd mention i used to get wrist pain and hand numbness with the drop bars i had and now its gone completely after i changed to flat mtb bars bt like the previous posters i'd check handlebar width, height, core exercises etc. are you putting too much weight on your wrists cos of fit and fitness? i think a bicycle fitter can only do so much too its up to you to really get the fit right. hope you get it soon thouugh makes so much difference
