tiny...(1/16" diam or smaller) and length = ((length of your forestay x 2) + 2 feet).

I think I have 1.5mm Marlow Excel Racing on mine. It doesn't need to be the "racing" version....Excel Pro would work just fine but that was the only one I could find that size.

I don't know what they actually use. I just use some line off of one of those mini spools since it handles no load it's whatever doesn't kill your fingers.

mini spool
