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.

Black Cherry on Honey Gold

Few shots of Phil's 650B before I pack it up and ship it.  This frame has a couple of custom features that I haven't used before.  The rear brake cable hanger along with the seat stay bridge are new as well as the hand-crafted seat stays.  The paint scheme is definitely one-of-a-kind.  Phil matched up the Black Cherry Pearl with some Honey Gold and its making me hungry just writing this. Waitress bring me some dessert.  Paul and Wayne did a super job on this thing.  Check out that barber's pole that you can ride on, style points here.  Even painted the water-bottle cages to match.  A finely painted seat lug is becoming a signature touch on all MEECH and MOTO-BICI frames, its so simple yet so cool.  Love it!  Plenty of braze-ons on this horse.  Besides the usual  we added some for a pump, racks, a chain-hanger, as well as a third pair of water-bottle bosses. Is that a threaded steerer?  You know it, as good as ever.  This is the second frame that Phil has bought from me.  He was one the earliest customers of MEECH Custom and its always nice to have repeat business.  Thanks Phil.  And when you get this beauty built up please send us some pics.  Its going in the mail asap and will be there in plenty of time to put under the tree.
