Its weird that you can't find straps to fit. Had a pair of Slyvians for a while and they're no different than any other pedal (and obviously based on old campy pedals). Never ran into staps that are too short, so I wonder if someone had cut the ones you had?
EAI have nice, really long straps that I've seen in several bike shops. Even the SOMA cheapo ones are much longer than you would need.
As to the laminated straps being too fat, never found a pair that weren't a match for a pair of needle nose pliers, a little dobin/grease and some yanking. Obviously once in, getting them back out can be tricky, so make sure you have the buckle on the outside and in the correct orientation.
Love clips and straps for urban riding.
