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.

Giro de Italia

The Giro has the first week behind it and today should start heating up a bit with the first uphill finish.  I believe today's stage is a little over 200k, from Recanati-Rocca di Cambio, two places that I have no knowledge of whatsoever because I've never been to Italy.  This years Giro has 2 of my favorite riders in place for overall contention.  I've been a fan of Roman Kreuziger for a handful of years now and he's just about do-up for a podium in a grand tour.  And you gotta like Ryder Hesjedal, ex-mountain biker who just never quits pushing and seems to excel in the toughest conditions.  While these guys aren't quite ready for the top step of the Tour podium they are good grand tour riders right on the edge of breaking through.  Dig in cause the dig is on.

"Ryder" is such a great name for a bike racer, but if I ever have a kid I'm gonna go with "Moto", and for their nickname I'm gonna just call'em "Wheels." 
"Ryder Moto Wheels" is an excellent name.  Yeah, Ryder Moto Wheels Harris it is.

Man, I don't see either Kreuziger or Hesjedal in this race.  Oh well, lets watch it anyway.
