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.

Arkansas State TT Champ

This is my good friend and local Cat 3 Jonesboro native Larry Yancey. We just call him el Hombre Peligroso (a bad man). He has been a part of R&D at MEECH Custom Bikes since we began. Sometimes when I was watching him ride the bike I would cringe thinking he was gonna break the frame for sure but after close to a year of beating the molasses out of it I am happy to say that it is still in one piece and even has a couple of state championships on it. Last year Larry won the Tennessee CX Championships on a MEECH and it felt good to take a first place, however in all fairness it was probably more Larry's legs than my frame but when I heard that he threw some 23c tubulars and a pair of clip-ons on it and won the Arkansas State TT I was totally stoked, I have always loved the versatility of 'cross bikes but this takes it to a whole new level. Good job! I would also like to mention that the Jonesboro boys cleaned up this year at the event, Trent Talley, Mike Suminski, and a host of others posted some fast times and brought home the swag. They love racing in Jonesboro, Arkansas so if you are ever there let 'em take you out for a spin but I am giving you fair warning, they will attack you faster than you can say cowboys and indians. Send me some more photos. Chao.
