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.

Jim's Ride the Rockies Ride

Just got Jim's road frame back from the powder coater a couple of days ago and here is the finished product.  We went with a Pearl White powder coat and a coat of clear on top of that to give it a little deeper look.  Since the frames are handmade here in America we decided to wave the flag on this one with some good old red, white, and blue decals.  Jim hasn't seen them yet so I hope he likes 'em.  Cool thing about decals on top of the clear is that they are easily changeable to a different style should you so choose.  I love the look of the beefy Life chainstays and the Pear-Penta shaped down tube.  This is the frame Jim is building up for the upcoming Ride the Rockies ride this summer.  We got some SRAM components on the way and hopefully this thing will be on the road by next weekend for some solid training. Check out the trademark Pegasus head badge by Revolution Cycle Jewelry, definitely worth the  extra weight. Thanks Jim and enjoy the ride.
