You'll be hard pressed finding a frame with the same mounting holes as an ice blade sorry to say. But its pretty easy to re drill.

Mounting machines?? That's pretty hard core, you're better off just lining up the holes and drilling freehand and mounting. Inline frames can be screwed on in place, just like an ice blade, with ease.

There are several topics listed here regarding this.. have a quick scroll through.

I'm not too sure as where in the US you can buy them. Arthur Lee often replies here, so I am sure he will provide some info. As for being under $200, thats a hard one.

Umm, the stopper is already assembled/attached to the frame. As you mount the frame, the toe will be in place, just as in the pic on an ice blade. If the toe rubber needs replacing, u just have to loosen the allankey and remove the toe stopper and replace it.

Not sure what you mean re the 'stop in a higher position'??? You can adjust the stop to any position you prefer, unlike an ice blade. That is one benefit of having a toe stopper (ugly as they may be!!)..

Hope this sort of helps...

Here are a few topics posted previously that may be of interest:
