I've noticed this with all of my diy's. They start off amazing after you set the tensions and lube, but after a month they get harder too turn... This has happened with 2 of my C4U diy's and my friends Type c. I lubed them with jig a loo. When i take it apart I see lots of white powdery streaks on the cubies. I wipe them off and it barley get's better. And solutions?

the cube always feel very good when you first lube it. after a while it slows down to a point whene no matter how you clean and lube it it's just not as good as before. this period may me very frustrating, but dont give up. just keep using them and after several weeks (it depends) when you lube it it'll become even better than the begining.
