About Me

My photo
Back in my hometown of Jonesboro., Arkansas, United States
My name is Dimitri Harris and I have been building frames for over 9 years now. I learned the basics after spending two weeks with Koichi Yamaguchi. He is one of the most interesting people I have ever met and I am thankful to have worked with him. Since then I have just been building one frame after another and learning as much as possible along the way. I build steel fillet-brazed frames that go by the name of MEECH, which is an old nickname that I have had since I was a kid. I build mostly cyclocross frames because I love their versatility however I also do road,single-speed, and mountain bikes as well. Custom frames start around $1400. All the frames are handmade by me here in Jonesboro, Arkansas. I am insured and guarantee all of my work so if you are in the market for a custom steel frame I would be glad to build it for you. I am also building frames from carbon fiber so if you would like to ride a prototype frame give me a shout. Thanks for stopping by. You can email me at meech151@hotmail.com or call (870)897-6703 or visit www.meechcustombicycles.com Thanks.

MEECH 3fana Road Bike

I built this frame off of the geometry from a Scott CR1 that I road for a couple years. I didn't paint it because I wanted the fillets to show through, truthfully the fillets could have been better but it is one of my earlier frames and I wanted to ride it more than sand and clean fillets you know. Frame weighs 3.5 lbs and with fork it is a mere 5 lbs. It is a size 58. It rides alot like the CR1, which even though the geometry is the same I thought there would be a huge difference since one is carbon and one is steel but they feel similar going over bumps.
