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.

The Pain Party Has Started

Cross season has officially begun and here is a quick photo of factory racer Larry Yancey at his first event.  Actually its his second but the first race in Herman, Missouri got rained out, yeah rained out.  How bad does it have to be in order to rain a cross race out?  Well, apparently cars were floating away during the storm.  Anyway, this course in Carbondale, Illinois looks a little more accommodating, dry dirt covered in grape vines.  No excuses for bonking here and I guess that explains why the prize purse was paid out in bottles of wine. Larry took first place in the Masters class while his racing buddy Nate took third in the Pro 1-2.  Congrats to the Jonesboro boys for a solid race day, and for all you cross racing whinos out there you may want to mark your calendar for this one next year.  Cheers.
