Pedal strike can only occur when actually pedaling a bicycle, not when looking at online spec sheets.
Bike mfgs have become reasonably competent at designing and producing machines that are suitable for their intended use in the last century or so.
By actually riding such a machine on the open public roads important skills in bike handling and cornering, like not exceeding the limits of traction and/or whacking a pedal on the road surface, will develop.
Or not.

Choosing to ride a FG machine will provide instant negative/positive feedback on a variety of rider inputs, including lean angles in cornering.
