Default Can i get an interchangeable Rec./Hockey frame on Agg. skate?

Hey guys,

I've been out of the aggressive skating scene for about 9-10yrs i think (it was around the time 5th elements first came to market...whenever that was). I still use my skates now and then, but I've been living under a rock when it comes to knowing whats changed in that time. I have a pair of majestic 12's and a pair of 5th elements...original types.

I'm now planning on doing some recreation skating with a group occasionally, but i still visit the skatepark/halfpipe now and then too. Am I able to buy some "universal frame size" aggressive skates and a larger (rec./hockey) wheel size frame to interchange with them? If so can you point me to some options for buying a larger wheel UFS frame? and are these frames easy enough to interchange to do it once every week or few?

Basically I want a skate thats a bit more friendly for cruising around than what i own. But it'd be nice to get a new aggressive skate to play with too if possible.. plus good quality 2nd hand aggressive skates seem to go cheaper here than low end 2nd hand recreational skates. Maybe the lighter weight of a new aggressive skate would be enough by itself I'm not sure..this recreational group aren't exactly speed demons and its not like I'm doing a marathon... I just get the sh!ts with my 5th elements beyond short distance. BTW I see theres skates like frontmans, but I don't want to cut corners on the aggressive side.

Also, anyone able to tell me what model USD skate this is, is it anygood?

Default more frames

I found a couple of frames (pre-assembled--price includes wheels and bearings) for $200-$250 Canadian (about $180-$235 American) on shop-task.

The first two frames in this link are UFS frames that fit on aggro skates but should ride like rec frames

Default Found more frames!

This site has several ufs frames that fit larger wheels:

unfortunately, it is in Spanish. This could be a good resource to find a frame and then see if it's sold anywhere more local than spain
