About Me

Mountain Home, Arkansas, United States
My name is Dimitri Harris and I have been building frames for over 6 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, its 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 Mountain Home, 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.

Break Out The Paint

Here is Rich's road frameset ready for the paint booth.  This is the largest frame that I have built since I started building frames however we built it in a way that doesn't make it look overly large.  The frame only weighs a mere 4.1 pounds and this is a size 62 cm frame with a whole lotta head tube and a beefy down tube.  I'll let Rich give me the low-down on the ride and if he thinks we can go lighter then on the next one we'll shave some more off.  Hopefully here in a couple of weeks we'll have some pics with color.  Check back.
