so i just bought some leather double to straps off of craigslist. the thing is they're of the custom handmade sort, and the straps are too wide to fit through the holes on the pedals. my question is, would there be any negative repercussions if i were to just get some scissors and cut them to the right width? or perhaps, maybe have somebody drill out the pedals to make the holes bigger.
here is a pic of them, i got them for $20. other then this one problem, im really stoked about them.
I have many vegan friends who also have this approach especially when it comes to used leather saddles which in the long run, are more environmentally friendly (unless you are a cow) as they will often outlast their rider.
With care you could trim those straps to fit but you will need extremely sharp tools.
