Anyone familiar with the machined chain drive pedal that knows if it’s possible to replace the chain with a strap? From the pics I’ve seen I don’t see the usual drum key bolt that would hold the chain like other pedals have.
You can see on the pictures that there is no drum key bolt. The last chain link is located radially (and not tangentially) in a trough in the cam and is fixed with a bolt (the bolt is parallel to the drive shaft). If this trough is continuous then you can replace the chain relatively easily with a strap. But if it is subdivided (which I suppose) then it is complicated but possible and you need an adapter.
Thanks for the responses guys. Just got a decent deal on a used set of these but prefer a strap over chain. Doesn’t sound like the pedal was manufactured for a strap conversion. . Oh well..not really a deal breaker.
