    I'm in Preston so I'd be up for a meeting somewhere in the North West if we can organise it.

    UK Cubers?

    Hi All, Im 3 weeks into cubing and hooked. Its bizzare really as Im a 40 year old and havent had a rubiks cube since they first came out in the 80's :eek:

    Anyway after three weeks Im hitting a 2:20 average with a pb of 1:54 Ive just ordered a ZhanChi from Lubix to see if it can help speed things up. Im practicing finger tricks and I'll soon be learning F2L before progressing onwards and upwards.

    Im also thinking of putting together a website and selling a few cubes etc. Anyone in the UK interested in buying cubes and getting them within a 2 day window for a reasonable price?

    Hope to be back here soon as there loads of info

    Cheers lads

    Ive managed to get some ZhanChis or order. Is it worth getting some C4U cores too? What about Guhongs and C4U cubes? does anybody buy these cubes?

    Maru is very popular between UK Cubers, but I also think you should get Lubix in stock too.

    I'll get in touch with Lubix now and get some on order asap
    I'll also get some Maru 3x3x3's in stock too

    The cores, should I order Dayan or C4U ?

    PS who's got the UK's fastest 3x3x3 single time? I'll send them a cube, you beat there 3x3x3 time and you can have one too. I'll also be sending other goodies to the fastest in the UK too :)

    I'm not sure Maru 3x3s are a good investment, though that's just me. What kind of stickers did you get, and how long until you think the store is open?

    Im not sure what make the skickers are but they have a Z on them? I have ordered standard colours and some sets with black instead of white for now.
    I'll order the Marus as somebody has requested them.

    I think I should be fully online with stock in about two weeks, Im just tweeking my store at the moment.

    What kind of prices are you guys thinking of paying for Guhongs etc considering that you will have them postage free in about 2 days after order placement?

    Robert Yau has the fastest official single, Breandan average iirc.

    Uh. £10 reasonable? You stocking Guhong IIs?
    Really excited about this store, I can't order from overseas you see...

  19. I'm not sure on the demand but you could think about stocking either shengshou 4x4,5x5 etc. or V-cubes. Also, Pyraminx(s? what is the plural of Pyraminx?) seem popular, at least to everybody I know in person (even some "non-cubers" find the Pyraminx really fun).
    With Pyraminx, I wouldn't know what make to recommend. Maybe someone with more experience could recommend a good brand? I don't think there's a major difference but I could be wrong.
