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.

Vuelta a Espana

Today my favorite race, la Vuelta a Espana, starts.  I spent around 7 months in Granada, Spain a few years back.  Learning some of the culture and the language was a great experience, and oh yeah, living 20 minutes from the base of Pico de Veleta made for plenty of interesting riding, or suffering was more like it.  If you left from the center of town you could ride uphill for more than 2 hrs., and that was if you were really fast.  Anyway, when you finally did get up to the top it was a great view and then you got to descend for about a half an hour passing as many cars as you could.  This is the Moviestar team for this year's addition of la Vuelta.  That naked, hairy guy was a last second replacement for an injured rider.  Turns out he is their GC man, so be looking for him attacking out of the peloton on some of the harder climbs.  He doesn't appear to be much of a time trialist.  Adios amigos.
