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.

Noah's Tourer

Here are a couple of pics of Noah's buildup.  This was a frame that I took to a show in Austin a while back and I put a one-off fork on it that mimicked a fork that I saw on a friend's old Raleigh.  I had no idea how it would feel but Noah said, "Solid and stable.", so thats what i like to hear.  This frame is unique because it was built similar to a Long Haul Trucker by Surly, which seems to be a very popular bike, however I used True Temper OX Platinum tubing to lighten the frame up.  I know absolutely nothing about touring and this was my first attempt at building a touring frame and according to what Noah told me it does exactly what I had hoped, solid enough for the long treks and light enough for a quick spin in the group ride or local cross race.  I love the look of the custom fork and the fat tires.  Roll on Noah.
