Boy, you're not kidding. I just ordered a couple sets of stainless spokes, only $35 each.
 
mightnt accept orders from aust .. just tried .. signed up ok but when place shipping address wouldnt accept it coming up invalid address , might only accept usa and canida address as they are the only currency options as well
 
Had the same problem Flea, they do offer international shipping other than the states so i sent a contact email. Might be because they are in the early stages of offering to other countries.

Do i get my cut.............

Makes one realize just how much these guys that bought the old Mikes are whacking on............Not long after Mikes was originally sold i did a rebuild of a motor invoice and compared it to the new owners and it worked out the 650 Direct was 12% overall cheaper than Mikes........
 
Wow. Considering the hammering the CAD has been getting the past few years that's pretty good. Mike's has a better selection though.

This is very interesting! When I was rebuilding my XS2, I needed the chrome grab handle for the seat. It was not available in the U.S. , but they had it in stock at 650 Direct. I contacted them but they could not sell anything to anyone in the U.S. due to some agreement they had with each other. I had to get mine through the underground Canadian railroad ( @MaxPete :D )

ALWAYS happy to help our American friends!
