I've seen this done before, I say you'd be fine with a 20" spoke.

I used to use a thin brass rod I got from the hobby store. Worked great!

Heck, saw someone use a literal bike chain. Welded the thing to the calipers and the lower cables!

Spoke mod is flexy, I wasn't a fan when I tried it. Use a 26" spoke, 20 works, but 24/26" gives you more adjustable length before you cut it (and tighten everything down).

The chain mod is really good, no flex. Only issue is that you have to file the area for some chains to fit right.

Both are good, but the better of the 2 is the chain mod.

Ah, that's it! Guess it wasn't welded, didn't look at it but a glance.

I ran this setup on my old Fit frame. Brakes weren't great but it looked sick.

I used a demolition straddle hanger, 1 knarp, and 2 spokes cut down to size

There's not enough of it showing for me to positively identify it, but that may be the Relic Counter sprocket as well.
