60 (was stuck on that for like a month before fridrich)
40 (had to work A LOT on recognition to break sub 40)
23-ish... I averaged 26 before. All OLL's memorized, it dropped me to 24, but I still can't seem to break it consistently.

Yea, I guess that now looking at it, I haven't really hit any barriers yet. I guess you could say back when I was averaging about 55-1:00 using FULL beginners' method it was kinda a barrier. But I wasn't really serious back then.
Since then I pretty much breezed by 40, was at 35 for about 4 days, and now am averaging about 29 average of 45. I hope it keeps going like this.

are there any good example slow solve videos around? i can't seem to find any on youtube. It just seems that my f2l is really inefficient.

Another question: for those who didn't learn 1L OLL and PLL until they couldn't get any faster with 2 looks, how fast could you get down to?

Its fully possible to get sub 15 averages with 2 look OLL. Not sure about PLLs.

my average for F2L minus cross is 32 moves. Right now my total average and barrier that I am experiencing is 30 seconds. Which I have gotten some some sub-30 averages, but 90% of my averages are 30.xx, and I know my F2L is to blame for breaking this barrier.

For some reason, I CANNOT get under two minutes on 4x4. My average and single best times are only a few seconds apart, I always get 2:0x.xx but I can't get under 2 minutes.
SAME!
stachu, you absolutely can. your 3x3 times indicate that.

what is holding you up from sub 2? what's your time breakdown like?
