About Me

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.

Fixie

I got the fixed-gear frame I was working on tacked the other day and now that I have Yancey's frame repaired I can get back on it.  The repair took priority over this since everything was already in the jig I wanted to stick it first.  This frame has a 4 degree forward sloping top tube just for kicks and to get the front end a little lower.  Might want to trim a couple of feet off the top of that head tube D.  I will.  I still haven't decided what style of fork I'm gonna build for this thing.  I have two ideas floating around in my head and I may not use either.  One was an aero-bladed steel fork.  It would be strictly for looks, but the ride could be a bit harsh so I may go with something a little more comfortable, but its gonna be a straight-blade for sure and its prolly gonna have curb-feelers.  Not sure that will go with the rattlesnake down tube.  We'll see.
