About Me

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.

How Cyclocross Should Start

This is how you start a race. Line everyone up side by side. Having 5 riders across with 15 rows deep is lame. Its basically just giving a few riders a head start while the guys stuck in mid-pack use everything they have, not to mention take crazy chances just to get in contention. Its not a fair start to a race. I don't care about tradition and all that bs, line everyone up side by side and wave the flag,  if the field is too large for that maybe go a couple deep but when the guys on the first row are going full throttle and have 50 meters with clear vision on someone who is just clipping in, it just sucks. Not only is this way more fair, but way more exciting. And they need to have  women in a bikini carrying a 30 second board around also.  Ok, thats just me being me but a race should be two things, a competition and a show.  If its more enjoyable it will make more money, and that seems to be what everyone wants.
