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.

First 29er Test

Here is Yancey on the maiden voyage of the one and only MEECH 29er.  Damn Pastrana, I said take it out for an easy "break-in" ride, not a "break-it" ride.  It reminds me of what my dad use to say to me when I was a kid, "Do you have to try and tear up everything?"  That whole blog about jumping garbage cans was supposed to be a joke.  He doesn't even have any suspension.  I guess he figures the garbage can will soak it all up.  Next week the garbage man is gonna find a garbage can in the garbage can. I think that is some sort of  ordinance violation, you're not supposed to throw away garbage cans in the garbage, they have to be disposed of properly.  I'm all sure that trying to climb that tree is probably most definitely gonna void the warranty of that fork.  I don't know what the White Brothers are gonna say about this, however,  if the fork stands up to all this abuse  maybe we can get some sort of sponsorship or something, we're gonna need it. Those are brand new Stan's No Tube Race Gold wheels, they only weigh like 9 ounces, they're gonna look like Pringles tomorrow.  Stan is gonna be pissed.  Enjoy the ride. Why does this frame look so blue in the pics when it is clearly supposed to be purple?
