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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call (870)897-6703 or visit www.meechcustombicycles.com Thanks.
Here are a couple of shots of a fork makeover I did last week for Phil Passantino. The fork on the right is obviously the new one and has zero miles on it while the one on the left has been to the moon and back and is gonna be set free in the pasture for the New Year. Phil was a customer of MEECH in my rookie year so I included a photo of the frame I built for him. He put the finishing touches on this beautiful bike and as you can see he has classy taste. I have stayed in touch with Phil over the last couple of years and I am glad to have worked with him. Repeat business is always a good thing. Thanks Phil! I am finishing up my third year as a frame builder and I have learned alot and looking forward to the years to come. I have been playing with carbon fiber a little bit in my spare time for the fun of it and hopefully will have a frame built sometime around spring, but, I am all sure that there is nothing that will ever ride as good as a steel frame with a steel fork so the torch is always gonna be burning here at MEECH. Thanks to everyone who has helped me out in my business; customers, friends, and family alike. I hope everyone has a Happy New Year. Cheers!
