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.
