|If you're the same Mike T. that posts in mtbr, you might be able to answer a question for me.
I just bought an old steel Gary Fisher Tassajara with XTR canti brakes. I'm a hopeless fiddler, so I can resist making immediate changes. I'm replacing all the cables and housings. I could use a traditional setup with a separate yoke and transverse cable, or I could use an integrated link cable. I know that Shimano link cables have a angle setup guide printed on them.
Other than this, are there any functional advantages to using one system over another?

|Yeah that's me. I couldn't register my mtbr name here so I had to use a version of the same.
The separate yoke and cable gives much more adjustability. Canti brakes can develop great power if the mechanical advantage is right.
Here is a good place to go for the info. It's D8/Upie's site from mtbr -
|Thanks for the info.||Spoiler|

|Yes Sheldon does have the stuff too but I didn't remember at the time.
Hey nice hangers! That should be a nice setup.
