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 shots of a frame I just finished up for a buddy of mine, Scott Taylor, aka Scoot. A couple of years ago he talked me into doing the Bicycle Tour of Colorado with him. Definitely a memorable and worthwhile experience, alot of flat stuff out there, you should go check it out. It was around the time I had started my frame building business and I rode the first frame that I actually built for myself. Screaming down a Rocky Mountain pass at over 50mph for close to a half hour is a good way to test your frame and fork. I have been working on better fillet-brazing techniques and here are some of the results. This frame tipped the scale at 3.3 lbs with no paint. Stay tuned to see what kind of paint Scoot likes.
