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.

Cheap Labor

This is Louie the part-time frame building cat. He doesn't actually build the frames, I do, but he is in charge of straightening them. I may have to garnish his wages though because he spends half the time up in some tree and the other half he just kills spiders and brings lizards in and chews off the tail. He loves it the way the lizards' tail keeps moving after he has separated it from the body, its like two toys in one. He'll attack the lizard for a while and then attack the tail, poor lizards.

Not long after we moved to our new location Louie took a bullet in the shoulder. Yes, believe it or not someone shot Louie with a pellet gun. He took it like a man though. He pulled the pellet out with his teeth and spit it back at the guy that shot him, and said, "Nes time you pool dat piece on me, I take your piece away fro you and put it up your culo, and pool de treeger till it go click. Cuz nobody f#*k wit da Jesus!" You sayd it main. It might have been a lizard-man that shot him. Hey, if your gonna work with steel you have to be tough. Peace!
