My old ten speed bike has been converted into a single-speed and my next upgrade was to add on some pedal straps. The prices for new as well as used straps was too much for my liking so I thought of making my own. Scouring the internet and various other Instructables for ideas, I decided I would try making some simple and cheap, yet relatively durable, straps.
The cost of this project was $0 since everything you require can be found in your home, and this project took me about 1 hour to complete. If you are looking for a quick and easy fix, look no further.
- Can be done in about an hour
- Easy to make and install
- Uncertain long-term durability
- Non-adjustable straps
- Non-removable (Must destroy the straps to remove them)
Step 1: Materials
You need scissors to cut the straps.
And finally a good lighter to burn/fuse the straps and to prevent the cut ends from fraying.
