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.

Stacking sticks

Here are a few photos of progress on a little 53cm road bike I am working on. Some observers have told me that i need to show a little more of actual builds in progress, personally I enjoy the finished product sitting on the starting line waiting for the gun however in an attempt to please those that enjoy the beginning, middle, and end, here are a couple of photos for you. Water-tight miters are a must on my frames. Before I went to Yamaguchi's frame school I didn't know what tight miters were but he lined me out and now my frames are lined out. To a bicycle frame builder, brazing tubes that have gaps between them just feels wrong. For those of you that like those fluxy, oxidized tube photos stick around, I want you to be happy as well. Chao.
