Same as above -- I average from 50 seconds to 1 min 10.

Once (just once), I got lucky and managed to solve a cube in 30 seconds.
My website: Currently boring.

Projects:
Axe Interpreter
   > Core: Done
   > Memory: Need write code to add constants.
   > Graphics: Rewritten.  Needs to integrate sprites with constants.
   > IO: GetKey done.  Need to add mostly homescreen IO stuff.
Croquette:
   > Stomping bugs
   > Internet version: On hold until I can make my website less boring/broken.

I've been able to solve the cube for a while, tho I haven't done much 'speedcubing' because the reason I got the thing in the first place was to kill time.
When it started going below 2min I started looking for something that did the job better :P and now with the 5*5 I can drag it out for at least half an hour XD

So um, 'slowcubing'? idk

I used to be into speedcubing, then I discovered calcs :) I would average between 55 seconds and 1minute 10 seconds. My best time is a 45. I was learning parts of F2L before, then I got bored with it.

I used to be... I stopped a few years ago.  Best time was like 39 seconds.

edit: for all of you who used petroleum jelly (or the brand Vaseline), that is actually really bad for the plastic.

For my cube lube, I used either graphite or silicon spray. It worked pretty well most of the time.

Hmm, I've been meaning to learn this sort of thing, but I don't think I have a decent Rubik's cube lying around...
I should go search for one :)

I've never even come close to solving a Rubik's Cube. ;.;
See you, space cowboy...

I've never tried lubricating my cube. Perhaps it'll make my times much faster?

Maybe. It depends on how fast your cube rotates now, and how used to moving it you are.

My average is 2 years ^.^
If you like my work: why not give me an internet?

How to become a speedcuber ?
1. Get a Speedcube on popbuying.com or other sites.
2. Learn an advanced method for solving the cube, to become faster.
    -> Most of the speedcubers are using the Friedrich method (1. F2L, 2. OLL, 3. PLL) , you can find those algorithms on kungfoomanchu.com
      -F2L (42 algorithms)
      -OLL (58 algorithms)
      -PLL (21 algorithms)
      total: 121 algorithms
3. Learn how to use fingertricks (youtube.com)
4. TRAIN, TRAIN and TRAIN ! ;)

Speedcubes:
Those cubes are "special" cubes, because they are much lighter as the original Rubik's Cube.
Those cubes have a good cornercutting (up to 45° !), they are smooth and fast.
The core and those pieces of the cube are created differnetly from cube to cube. Most of the speedcubers are using A-Cube's from Haiyan or FII from ShengEN. But it depends on the cuber, which cube you'd prefer. Some cubers like it more "slow" and less cornercutting, others like it more fast but have to take the risk, that the cube can pop.


The World record is hold by Feliks Zemdegs with 5.66 seconds. He was playing with the cube "Dayan V" in white.
Feliks average is around 9-10 seconds.

EDIT: How to tune up my old Rubik's Cube?
-Buy silicone spray and spray that in your cube
-Make 200-300 solves and the cube will be faster (sounds long, but it isn't ;) )

EDIT: I think I solved once a 7x7x7 in about half a hour, but maybe that was the 6x6x6 one, dunno....... unfortunately my 6x6x6 one is broken... :(
