Default my skate frames..and wheels

hey guys..hows ur weekend going?
I got back into skating this year..and have been interested in learning some slalom.I have seba skates...fr..2 ... with 80mm wheels and 255 frames. Should i have shorter frames and smaller wheels? If i should...is it better to make all those changes now,,, or learn on what I have, then change? I was just thinking...would it be harder to change to shorter frames after ive spent longer on what i have (gotten used to them..learning slalom on the larger?) does that makes sense?

it's so awesome to see people starting up !!

order of noticeable changes:

1.) changing from flat to rockered (76-80-80-76 wheel configuration). relatively inexpensive and you will definitely need the extra maneuverability

2.) changing frame lengths. they do make a difference. depending on your boot size (if you have small feet, then you can use 231mm frames). the most common frame size is 243mm.


you can probably get away with using 255mm frames, but make sure you switch into a rockered set up. 255mm frames are fine-ish when starting off, and if you manage to snag a secondhand or find a cheap deal, go for either 243-231's
