You should definitely stay away from the Shimano units. They don't provide you with any ability to modulate your brake leverage.

I highly recommend going with a standard straddle cable and an Avid Tridangle or other cable carrier that locks the position of the straddle cable. The Avid Tridangle allows you to set your cantilever center position exactly and then cinch it in place with a series of 2mm allen bolts. :wink:
