I wouldn't go with the direct drive but then I don't like direct drive. I left the straps on mine but I didn't really see any notable difference between chain and strap. If you must get the strap then email mapex.
The old version (pre 2013) came with a strap. The new ones don't, or at least, everyone I've seen with the new version got ripped off.
