*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com

Default Balance... Really?

Hey all.

I've got some Riedell R3s and to be fair, I don't like them. The balance is... weird. It's all front loaded so I can't stand up and just cruise with them (or I'll fall over). I just feel the back wheels need to be a half inch (or more back).

Are they all designed like this? I keep wanting to stretch to my full height, but it doesn't seem possible in Derby skates. I'm always slightly crouched on them and always feeling like I'm about to fall on my ass whenever I even try to just coast...

Maybe I made a mistake in buying them and wanted some feedback. Right now they're OK, but I'm not really getting on with them.

Edit: these are speed skates and maybe I just need to learn to skate on them all over again.
