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.

Blurred-Slow Motion Vision

"Is that the same frame?"  Yes Virginia, thats the same frame.  My blogging has slowed as has my frame building.  I got started on too many little projects and now I'm so spread out I don't know if anything is getting done.  It is, but just a little of each project at a time so it appears that nothing is getting done.  Hopefully its gonna all come together here soon and "BAM" it will all be done at once.  Wishful thinking baby.  I've been working on having a new website built and also just started on having a cycling outfit designed for MEECH.  I've wanted to do that for a while and it just never was a priority but someone mentioned it the other day and so now things are in motion.  Its pretty well designed but I'm looking for one more sponsor to balance the look out.  For some reason I got the idea that having a winery sponsor would look cool on there.  Maybe so during times like these I can just drink wine until sweet oblivion.  Are you kidding me?  I can't get anything done sober.  The last thing I need to do is start drinking.  There is a local resort here in Mountain Home called The Blue Lady and they also make wine and import olive oil and such.  They have a really cool logo and I thought it would look good on the jerseys.  Thats how the whole winery idea came about so now I'm calling wineries all over the state to try and get them on board. I had no idea wine could be made in Arkansas but its fairly common practice in some parts. I only need one but they don't seem to be in the same hurry that I am.  Oh well, everything will be alright.  I might just have to buy my own wine to pass out.  I just got back from my home town of Jonesboro a couple days ago as well.  I've still got things there that I have to take care of.  Mainly mowing the grass during the summer and any repairs that need done on the cabin thats falling apart slowly.  My mom is selling the house that we grew up in, actually its already sold, and moving to Nashville to be close to some of her grandchildren.  Shes been in the house nearly 40 years, it was the one my dad built, and I have no idea what type of changes are gonna come about in this deal.  Hopefully all for the better.  I did manage to get in a good ride with some of my buddies there.  The weather was perfect and we were rolling when we left town and rolling even faster coming back into town.  Loved it!  Everything is going ok.  No real problems, I'm just a little scatter-brained right now.  I prefer to focus on one thing at a time however I also get very bored doing the same thing over and over so I invent new stuff to occupy my mind (remember MOTO-BICI?) and before I know it I've got myself all over the place and just wishing I could go back to the one thing.  Thats where I'm going right now, to finish this frame up today.  Thanks for listening.

I did manage to get a few extra frames out of my way.  I have frames in bedrooms, storage rooms, the garage, in my car, etc.  I got tired of tripping on them so I hung a few up to make things a little neater.  I'm gonna get back on track starting right now. No wait. Ok starting right now.  Wait just second.  Ok, starting now.
