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.

Mathew Molewyk's Custom CX Frame

This is a frame I just finished up for Matt Molewyk. It has a super-cool paint job done by Ace's Wild Custom here in Mountain Home. Combined with the Ritchey WCS Carbon fork this frame almost looks carbon itself. Matt decided to go with some Paragon Breezer-style dropouts as well as their 3-piece cantilever brake bosses. This is a really sweet cross bike, size 58cm, thats just about right for me, hmmm, no I will wait and let Matt be the first rider but man its tempting. Matt has been laid up in the hospital with the flu for a few days now and I am trying to get him motivated to get out, I know he is ready to start training again and get back out on the cross circuit. Thanks Matt and I hope you are feeling better.

650B Belt Drive

Here is the finished 650B belt-driven mountain bike I have been working on for Ian Hope. I was very pleased with how it turned out. Ace's Wild Custom here in Mountain Home did the paint job this time and we just went with a solid black pearl paint that looks unbelievable in the sunlight. As usual, photos don't do it any justice because I am a miserable photographer, cameras and computers are just not my thing. I liked this frame so much that I am gonna build another frame similar to this just as soon as i am caught up. It would be nice to have an endless supply of bike parts so that I could build up some of these frames. I would like to test ride every one of them but there is just not enough time to build up every one of them so that's where I rely on you guys to build'em up and give me the low down. So far its gone pretty smooth, thanks!
