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.

El Griego

Here is a shot of a frame that I just played around with. I fabricated the seatstay wishbone out of a few extra parts I had laying around in the shop, I also had some Paragon track dropouts w/hanger and their 3-piece brake bosses on hand so those got used as well. I cleaned up my shop and got a sweet CX frame as well. This frame was built strickly for custom aesthetics so its a little heavier than my average cross frames but not much, just a hair over 4 lbs., not bad for as much steel as it has in it. I can't wait to get it painted, its gonna be one of a kind for sure. I named it El Griego which means "the Greek" in Latin. My dad was full blooded Greek but I never learned to speak any of it, I did spend a few months in Spain though and a couple of the local riders use to call me El Griego. The seatstay wishbone actually has a bit of an old-world column look to it so I think the name is perfect. Stay tuned for the finished product.
