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.

Championship Cross Bike w/ Champ on Board

This is the finished product. A few weeks ago I posted a photo of a raw S3 cyclocross frame built for Larry Yancey of Jonesboro, Arkansas and here it is after Larry got finished. Its an incredible 16.8 lb steel cyclocross bike. I took a quick 200 meter spin on it and it climbs just like a road bike. This is a pro level cross bike, pure racing machine. You could race crits on it if you wanted and I wouldn't be surprised to see Yancey pushing it off the front going for a few primes this summer. This frame is totally stacked, Campy Record 10, Easton fork, Zipp Cyclocross tubular wheelset, everything is high-end race componentry. I love building frames and I especially love seeing them built up the way people are gonna ride/race them. This bike didn't get finished until Saturday night, Larry picked it up, took it to the Arkansas State Cyclocross Championships on Sunday morning and won. He only got to do one warm-up lap, got a dead last place start, and then started chasing them down one by one until he was out front. It was a classic ride and now he has the champions skinsuit to show for it. Congratulations! There were 2 more MEECH riders in the field I would like to mention, Trent Talley and Jess Parker. Thanks guys for flyin with MEECH. Another Jonesboro rider who rides for Big Shark Racing out of St. Louis won the Cat 1/2 race in supreme fashion. Congratulations to Nathan Rice, who is also a mechanic from Gearhead Outfitters that stayed late and finished up Larry's bike so he could make it to the race. Thanks Nate, I wanna get you on one of my frames brother. Here is a quick photo, hope you like it.
