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.

J. Holsted's Frame

Finished Jim's frame up last week and everything turned out sweet. Here are a few photos showing the work.  We are going with a Pearl White powder coat on this one and we decided to go with a Ritchey Pro Carbon fork instead of steel in order to shave some more weight off.  I couldn't believe it when I hung it on the scale and it weighed in at under 4 lbs., mind you this is a size 61cm steel frame with tubes that only big boys are allowed to play with. Don't want to bore you with more photos of fillet-brazing because I know most of you have seen tons of fillet-brazed joints but I continue to post them so that the customers or any new comers to the site can see the work that is under the paint.  Enjoy and check back in a few days for the finished product. Chao amigos.
