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.

Eric's Cross Machine

Eric got his cross frame a couple days ago and didn't waste any time getting it built up.  He said it floats like a magic carpet.  Who wouldn't want one of those?  Anyway, it looks like a straight ahead race machine to me. Oh man, check out that hardpack California terrain, thats what I'm talkin about.  High speeds and skinned up knees.  "Tell me tell me what your after, cause i just wanna get there faster."  Let it fly!  Thanks E!

More White

Chihiro's frame looked very sharp after I picked it up the other day but after seeing photos of it he told me that he was expecting more white so I hesitantly took it back to Ace and said he wants more white.  No questions asked.  I picked it up today and now it has more white.  I have to say I like it even more.  Check out that head tube paint work.  Paul hit another homerun with this one.  Thanks go out to Paul and Wayne who take extremely good care of my frames and customers.  Thanks guys.

Texas Handmade Bike Show

The Texas Handmade Bike Show is happening in Austin, TX on October 16-17.  On Saturday everything is taking place at the Music Hall but come Sunday its gonna be shakin down outside in the middle of a mosh pit, or a cyclocross race for those who may be unfamiliar.  It will be the first show I have gone to and I'm stoked to meet all the other builders and check out some sweet custom frames.  On Sunday my good friend and factory MEECH privateer rider Larry Yancey will be strapping the 'cross boots on to give it a dig on Austin's soil.  He'll be riding the first S3 cross frame that I built and it tips the scale at 16.8lbs.  If you would like to see it come by the booth or tent and check it out.  If you ask him nicely he might even let you pick it up, or he might bite your fingers, he gets a little funny when theres a race fixin to go down.  Here are some photos of a couple of frames I will be bringing with me and I have a couple more that I am keeping a secret, actually they just aren't painted yet, but thats still a secret cause I didn't tell you how I'm gonna paint them.  See you there!

Eric's CX'er and David's Stem

Here are a couple of photos of Eric's cyclocrosser and David's stem fresh out of the paint booth.  This is about as white as it gets and I love it with the black logo, so simple yet so bold.  Before long maybe Eric will send us some photos after the mud has been applied, personally I am a hardpack fan, can't stand the mud or anything else that slows me down. While I'm at it, screw the wind too. Ahh that felt good.  Sometimes you just have to get things off your chest. I can't wait to see this frame built up and race ready and maybe David will send us a photo of his ride as well. Let It Fly!
