Ah. Understood. I can see this being necessary on pedals that actually use a sprocket too, but lately, alot of pedals have chains, but they're not mounted on a sprocket. In fact, my Yamaha pedal has a chain, but it fits in the same trough that uses the strap, but it sits on felt and never sees gear teeth.
