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.

MEECHcross Ready!

This is Brad's 'cross bike after Doug and friends from Poppa Wheelies Bike Shop in Russellville, AR got done with the build. If it rides as good as it looks then we can say mission accomplished. Thanks for all the help from everyone on this. Brad, Poppa Wheelies, Bob Davis Machining, Ace's Wild Custom, Edge Composites, and a couple of others helped make this one come together. Good job everyone!

Berryman's Custom Carbon CX'er

I finally got Brad's frame finished and back from paint and it was totally worth the wait. Paul from Ace's Wild Custom knocked out a killer paint scheme just winging it from a couple of ideas by Brad and the clearcoat over the carbon tubes makes them look like black glass in the sunlight. Check out that hint of red on the tips of the tribal flames. Oh dude, this thing is just my size too. Its sitting in the spare room and occassionally I find myself drooling over it like a hound dog in a meat market. If you go back to some older posts where I was building this thing you know that it started out as a complete steel frame and when I took the hacksaw to it there was no turning back. This thing is a dream come true for me as a builder because its the style of frame that I first imagined building but it took me quite a while to get the necessary experience. Anyway, I can't wait for Brad to get it built up and give me the low-down on how it rides and feels. Along with the custom paint scheme we have an integrated-style headtube with an FSA Cross specific headset, Edge Composites cross fork, Paul Taylor Carbon Cross seatstay, handmade integrated seatpost done by my good friend Bob Davis with the rear brake cable running through the seat tube, and even the triple-stop on the top tube is custom. I hope to be riding one similar this fall. Cross season is just around the corner. Pain Party!

El Chava

I finally got me a road bike built. We painted it in Hot Rod Black. It hits the scales at 17.3 lbs right now but I still have a couple of cards to play before its totally done. I was shooting to be in the 16s but I think that bronze head badge put me over. Oh well, its worth it.

Handmade in the USA

Here is an older frame that never got painted so I just threw some custom decals on and a little clearcoat. I plan on taking it to a show soon just to show some of the craftsmanship.
