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.

MEECH 650B Belt-Drive Mountain Bike

I finally got this frame built up this week.  I have had this frame laying around for a while and have been gradually putting it together and it feels good to see the finished product and test ride the belt-drive system.  It rides super-smooth and the belt-drive seems very strong with no noticeable weaknesses.  The finished product tips the scales at 20.9 lbs. but who cares, just ride it and enjoy it.  Its stacked with components from White Brothers, FSA, American Classic, and of course Carbon Drive Systems.  Its roughly a size medium but I can fit my lanky arse on it and be pretty comfortable, enough to get the vibe anyway.  That carbon shell saddle by FSA is more comfortable than I thought it would be.  I don't know about doing any double-centuries on it but I think I could get use to it.I'm taking this thing to the Texas Bike show on October 16 & 17 so feel free to come by and check it out.  Chao amigos.
