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.

Clean Slate

Thank goodness the Tour de France is over.  Man, I didn't feel like I was getting anything done for the whole month of July.  It was an excellent race this year, and I think most people were happy for Cadel Evans but I'm ready to start a new project and  right here on the table it is.  I did manage to get a couple things done.  I finished up my first 29er and I should have some pics of that shortly, and I just shipped off RV's road frame which turned out excellent but I promised not to post any pics until after he has seen it so hopefully in a couple of days I can post those.  The carbon frame is just sitting over there in the corner waiting to be finished and things keep coming up that take precedence.  When I said I hoped to be riding it in the spring, I unintentionally meant spring of 2012.  The year 2012 just sounds like something futuristic, like some movie preview you saw when you were a kid in 1975.  Does anyone know how to slow things down a bit?  If you do please let me know.  Anyway, this fresh batch of tubing is going on a, yep, you guessed it, a psyclocross frame.  The "Pain Party" is looming in the background and I plan on having someone on the starting line on this frame.  I already know how its gonna be painted.  Allrighty then, let the transformation begin. I just realized that there are no fork blades in this photo.  Pfff, wheres my phone?
