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.

Before and After

Here is Brad's cross frame all finished up before I put the chop on it and then afterward. The after part was kind of a liberating experience, just chopping up a perfectly good frame. Then I thought all I had to do was just glue it all together. Well, not so fast hotshot. Are you familiar with compound angles? I wasn't, because I was sleeping in geometry class 25 years ago, not that I would've remembered any of it today but luckily after a little scare and a good nights sleep with a lot of prayers I got it together. There are only 4 pieces but it was kinda like one of those Chinese puzzles, only with a deadline. As soon as I get the seat mast turned out its going to paint. Check back. Hasta luego.
