Thanks for the info guys. Hopefully I can find a shop to try both regular and wide, just to see and feel the difference. I'm hoping to buy them at REI, so in case they don't feel good after 3 or 4 rides, I can just return them and try something else.
@Chris2437 - I actually called Salomon, which was a task on it's own, to see if they discontinued it and the guy said it's in their product catalog. He said that he didn't see too many shops in my area, and that I might have to ask them to order them also.
