This is the official thread for Caltech Spring 2013 Rubik's Cube Competition. This competition is not yet on the WCA website but you should anticipate the competition to be on May 25th, 2013.
The organizer and I wanted to know what events you guys would like to see at the...
My friend Tim attempted to break the NAR for MBLD last Saturday at our competition. Although he didn't get the record, I am very impressed by him. Both attempts were 12/14 and the second attempt was 20 seconds faster. This is also the most number of cubes attempted in North America. Tim started...
I intended to make this thread sooner but I simply forgot :p
I will be hosting my second official competition (delegated by Michael Young) with my friend Tim Wong and we have a very ambitious event list this time:
3x3 (3 rounds)
OH (2 rounds)
On April 6th I got my first official sub 20 OH avg. I'm very happy with the average since it was the winning average and close to my pb Ao12. I hope I can get some advice on how to get faster because I like the event a lot and I'm not sure what's left for me to do besides even more timed solves...
As many of you may know Cubesmith takes forever to process orders, this is the reason I no longer order from them. I used to order from them a lot because I tried to replace the stickers of every puzzle I owned. But I have gotten lazy to sticker cubes ever since I became a serious speedcuber and...

I recently got stumbled upon this video and and tried learning some of the algs, but then I realized if I learn all of these then my f2l style would dramatically change.
Are these f2l tricks? Or straight-up f2l algs...
The new shengshou 7x7 is now very popular due to its quality and cubic shape, and has become the main of many including Dan Cohen. I was wondering what people did to their shengshou 7x7s to make it good. I will be modding a bunch of cubes and was thinking about modding the 7x7, but I am unaware...
Does anyone have problems with their shengshou 5x5 core cracking? Or am I just really unlucky?
I disassembled my 5x5 only to find that the core had cracked, I contacted the store and they were very nice to send me a new one. Unfortunately this core is still cracked (but not as cracked as my...
My last thread was to see if people were actually interested.
I will be back to the states on the 12th of February and I will be shipping immediately. Please keep in mind that I am NOT wholesaling these puzzles, I am simply doing some people a favor by going to a store and buying some cubes...
So it seems like people think it is worth spending hours to fully mod the Shengshou 5x5 but what about the shengshou 4x4?
Is it worth the time to fully mod it?
Or is it better to slowly break it in?
Hey guys, I wanted to know how the Socal cubers feel about this competition, particularly the date and schedules.
The competition will be held in a small city called Diamond Bar, CA possibly the Recreation Center 21865 Copley Dr, Diamond Bar, CA 91765. I am not 100% sure of the venue yet but I...
I am in Korea and decided to buy some cubes before I come back to the states. I was wondering if anyone is interested in anything from Edison. There is everything from Nobel Cubes, Edison cubes, to edison megaminxs.
All prices vary but the pyraminx for example is $20 free shipping to the...
My parents are going to Europe and asked me if I wanted anything from there. They will pretty much be going to lots of countries since there will be there for 4 weeks; France, Great Britain, Italy, Germany, Denmark, Switzerland, Sweden, Hungary.... (Listed countries they will go to from most...
