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.

Yo Man, Get Down!

My wife Anne spends her days off working with various forms of art.  Sketching, painting, mixed-media, and even soap making are some of the things she enjoys.  There is always some type of creating going on in this household.  Even the dog and cats do some creating of their own.  Pinky, who is our Shih-tzu, enjoys chewing the arms and legs off of babies, (not real babies, stuffed animal babies), and likes to occasionally paint the floor with puke while Louis and Smokey, aka "Screw-Us Louis" and "The Silent Assassin", like to decorate the house with a more modern, destructive approach, basically broken stuff.  They all keep things interesting around here and I love every minute of it.  These photos here are from a little bicycle inspiration Anne had.  Where would she get that from?  Anyway, my 'fro catches a lot of air and slows me down when I'm on the bike but it looks so  funky cool that its worth it.  Roll with it. The cat with the machine gun is not ours, I took that off the web, but on any given day the boys can give that cat a run for his money.  Did I mention my wife is also an excellent cook.  Love ya Baby!
