    You may not need to replace the cable. Those are cantilevers, you need to find the metallic part that connects the vertical cable to the horizontal cable. It's a tiny metallic part.

    The part is not expensive, but it may not be easy to find. The cantilever brakes are an old brake type.

    Most shops should have the wire carrier for right around $3.00 or so, and a new cable should run between $3.00 and $5.00. Your straddle cable looks okay, so tops $10.00 unless you have the shop do it then probably right around $15.00 to $18.00 depending on labor rate.

    happy trails...
