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.

Winnie's Custom 'Crosser

Here are a couple more photos of Craig's build. He wanted to have the rear derailleur cable running internally through the seat stay so with the help of my good friend Bob Davis, who is one of the most unique individuals I have ever met, we made it happen. Bob is an expert machinist here in Mountain Home with tons of experience building motorcycles, airplanes, bicycles, and no telling what else. I go over to his shop whenever I can because I learn something new every time I am there. The first time I went to his shop I was standing around waiting and just kinda checking things out when I noticed a blue-print of some sort of bike thing amongst all of the thousands of pounds of steel tools laying around and when he came out I asked him, "What is this? Turns out it was a blue-print to build a replica of the first ever steam-powered motorcycle. Then, he takes me into the back of the shop and shows me all of his custom motorcycles. I tripped out and if you saw it you would too. There is a youtube video of a steam-powered motorcycle, I will try to find it. Long story short, the internal cable routing wasn't a big deal to him but he did say it was sweet and coming from him thats a nice compliment. I am very lucky to know him because right up there with Koichi Yamaguchi, Bob has taught me many things that have improved my frame building drastically. Thanks.


  1. I love the internal routing. Keep up the good work, I'm adding your blog to my reading list.

    [hopeful wannabe rack builder sometime soon]

  2. Thanks Jason, it was the first time I had done this and I was happy with how it turned out. This bike has a list of things that were the first time I had done, i've learned alot just from this one build.
