V-brakes and (traditional) cantilevers require different pull ratios. No lever will provide both.
Any HG 6/7/8-speed chain will work. Yes there are cheaper alternatives.
Measure your old chain. If it's way worn, you might not want to change it unless you can afford a new rear cluster at the same time. New chain + worn cluster = bad juju.
If at some point in the future you want to upgrade/replace the Biopace crankset or rings, remember that they may have substantial value on eBay. People want them.
