I'll echo the 'fit is king' sentiment. That said, I've never riden a S-12-S but did ride a Fuji Sports 10 around for a while (lower end sport geo bike). It worked fine but if I remember correctly...

I have Dia-Compe 983s on my Schwinn Voyageur, but they don't have that eccentric pivot-mounting system. Did that come on the 982s or the 983 also? Can I just buy those pivots and slap them on?
