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.

Graduation Day

I was going through some old pictures the other day and came across these from the Yamaguchi frame school. This was the final day of frame building. It was over 3 years ago and I never would have thought that I would still be building frames, however,  building frames was the original idea behind going  so I guess things are rolling along as planned.  Judd and Will were the other two students with me.  Check out those 50 caliber shell casings brazed into Will's seat stays.  While Koichi & Will were hollowing out the shells for brazing Judd was out back trying to ignite the caps with a hammer.  Way louder than what anyone was expecting, just ask Rosco, he was under the table for a couple hours after that. Dangerously custom you might say.  Working with Koichi was a very memorable experience and I would do it again in a heartbeat, he's about as cool as they get.  If you ever get the chance to go it will definitely be worth your while.  Enjoy!
