Long Shen question

My girlfriend and I will be trying for our first frame-build within the coming months and I'm currently trying to source materials for the build. She's interested in a set of Long Shen lugs and I was wondering if there was a source for these state-side. I saw that framebuilding carries nearly the complete catalog, but they're over in the UK. Of course, there's always Long Shen themselves, but they're in Taiwan.

Any help is appreciated and, of course, there will be a build thread at some point in the summer (hopefully).

Don't be afraid of ordering from Ceeway. They have great prices and even with shipping they are price competitive.

Just a little FYI, Long Shen makes lugs for just about everybody - in fact, Henry James's lugs are the only ones that I'm aware of that are not made by Long Shen.
Becareful buying/selling bike parts on-line. I learned the hard way. :(
