The life of a Gone-in-60-second cuber.
It blows my mind that when I'm learning to Speedcube non-chanting without a timer, I'm doing pretty good and my flows are improving quickly.
But the minute I start using a timer, whether offline by myself or on Cube Station under the timer by myself, my...
I am horribly slow but, I have to post something :P Trying to get better at 2x2 after I finally finish up learning 3x3. Times (in case for some reason you care): 8.961, (8.119), (12.675), 11.018, 11.275. Really want a sub-10 average right now
I average 10 seconds with my moyu pyraminx but in my solve i keep unintentionally twisting the corners so that the solved ones are unsolved and i have to redo them.
How can i make them harder to turn them down and prevent this?
I once ave been averaging about 25 seconds and i have not yet taken a break from cubing but now my times continuosly get worse and more inconsistent. The slower times are no biggie but the inconsistency is more frustrating than anything. I need help getting more consistent and after i am there...
I know intuitive F2L, 2-look OLL, and half of the PLLs, use a stickerless zhanchi (and just ordered a YuLong), but yet i still have a 45 second average :confused:.
Any tips on how to improve quickly?
I recently bought my first brand new Dayan Zhanchi 3x3 from a supplier on E-Bay. When I received the cube within the first few seconds of play it popped. I re-assembled the cube and a few minutes later it popped again. After numerous pops I approached google, Youtube and the...
My average was around 30 seconds on a standard Rubik's brand. I had fairly decent F2L lookahead, 2-look OLL and most 1-look PLL cases. My best time was 24 seconds.
I bought a Dayan Zhanchi.
My average is around 30 seconds on the Dayan Zhanchi. I have some, but not the best...
We are a cube store in New York. We carry popular WCA puzzles at great prices as well as premium lube and custom cut stickers.
Hit us up anytime if you have any questions:
I keep seeing all of these questions about lube. I think it would be good to keep lubrication questions all in one thread about where to buy and what lube to use for what cubes.

I just learned f2l yesterday and I can do it now by memory but it dramatically increases my solve time. I feel like I have to think about what moves I am going to do and I also feel like I'm constantly searching for pieces around the cube. Will I get better over time? How Do you guys know where...
Looking ahead and turning at a consistent pace is very important in F2L. In this video, I demonstrate that by looking ahead and turning at a steady pace, you don't need to turn extremely fast during F2L to achieve sub 20 averages.
