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.

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!
