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.

Rain, Rain, Go Away

Its been raining and storming all over Arkansas as well as a lot of other states these last few days.  This is what it looks like in front of our house right now.  This morning I had to take my wife to work because her RAV wasn't quite big enough to go through it.  Later that evening I went to pick her up and when we got back then I couldn't get through it in my truck.  Luckily there is a little gap between some trees behind the house and I can sneek it through the back yard if I need to.  I haven't been riding much at all this year and this is making it that much more difficult.  I used to go out training in the rain without giving it much thought but now I seldom do it.  If you called me a "fair-weather rider" I couldn't say much back.  These days I spend more time building bicycles than riding them but I can turn on a dime if I so choose.  I'm only 4 lbs. over my race weight right now which is amazing considering all the junk food I have been eating.  Yesterday I went to the store to get some cat food and had to have a box of Little Debbie Swiss Cake Rolls.  I ate half the box on the way home and the other half over the next couple of hours. Hey, at least I didn't eat the cat food. Yes, I'm an addict and not even this lake in my front yard could keep me from a candy bar if I start to crave it.  Have you tried the new 3 Musketeers Truffle Crisp?  Don't do it.  Man, its still raining out there.  I wonder why the mail didn't come today?
