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.

Que Curviosa!

Check out this swanky head tube from Dedacciai that Bringheli sent me.  Its made to run a tapered fork and while thats been going on for a couple of years now this is gonna be the first one that I've used.  She's a little heavy (ella es un poco pesada) but I'm probably gonna cut about 7 centimeters off the top so that will shave a little weight off.  I may go full disc-brakes on this frame just for the fun of it.  Looks like things are headed that direction.  Shimano's got disc-brakes for the road coming out pretty soon.  Things change so fast.  I try not to get too caught up in it but when people start asking for it I guess you gotta jump in. This should be an interesting build.  Chao.
