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 Perfect Job!

This is Steven Ward, ex-pro road racer and one of my good riding buddies from the past.  This guy is a blast to hang out with unless its the final corner of a crit and then you'll get popped like a plastic bag.  Steve put the bike down for a while and did a little globetrotting but it looks like when he got to Dacca, Bangladesh that old riding itch got the best of him.  Obviously what happened here is he was getting a ride from the "rickshaw driver", (I didn't know they were called that but I got educated), and the dude wasn't going as fast as Steven is used to going so he told him, "Get in the back seat and let me show you how its done."  The guy is smiling now but I wonder what he looked like when the ride was over.  I bet the bike was in pieces. This is one of the coolest photos I have seen in a while.  Love it! Its always good to see you Steve.  Chao amigo.
