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.

Pain Party!

Yep, you guessed it, cyclocross season is just a handful of weeks away and I know some people already "chompin at the bits" to get on the starting line. This is the start up of a new cross frame for Eric, a California based cross racer. This is gonna be a tight package built with OX Platinum on the main triangle and for clearance we are using some S-bend chain and seat stays. The down tube is a super-light 31.8mm and is as light as an S3 down tube. With an effective 52cm top tube and a 50cm seat tube this may be the lightest cross frame that I have ever built, we'll just have to wait and see what the scales say. Anyway, this is a pure, straight-forward cross racer, nothing extra hanging on that could slow him down. Build it strong, build it light, build it right! Stay tuned for more.
