title says it all. Got some canti's with no straddles. Or should I say link wire? There's different sizes/letters but which do I need. Which type will work best with my m565e cantis?

There's a picture of the different straddle cables with the corresponding letters/ lengths here, under the heading Special Considerations for Low-Profile Cantilevers...

...I think the thing to do would be to measure the relevant dimension on your brake setup and shop accordingly?

cheers fella,
I had checked Sheldon Brown out prior to posting but must have missed that section of the site. That's a good link thanks.
