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.

First International Order

Here is a frame I am finishing up for Chihiro, a Japanese road racer. This was my first international order so I was pretty stoked to be building it for him. Its a pretty straight-forward road racing frame built with OX Platinum tubing and a wishbone seatstay. It also contains an integrated head tube and one of my integrated seatposts made by local Mountain Home machinist Bob Davis. Chihiro decided to go rock-solid and get the matching steel fork as well. This thing has crit racing written all over it. Check out that white Avocet O2 Ti racing saddle, where can you buy one of those? Is that a red one also? My butt has been sitting on an O2 for 20 years. I have 7 of them in all different flavors and I am hoping thats enough to last me the rest of my life, they are getting harder and harder to find. Anyway, a MEECH will be on top of Mount Fuji before too long. Stay tuned for the paint job. Chao.
