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.

Wet Paint

Here are a couple of quick pics of Mike's frameset after I just got done shooting the clear.  After trying a couple of different painting techniques over these last few paint jobs I think I'm getting it closer to dialed in.  Between the lighting and the flash on the camera I'm not sure any of these pics capture the true color.  This photo here that has a darker blue look to it is actually the closest but it may even be a shade darker than this.

The flash of the camera made it look baby blue in this photo.  Not bad looking at all but the true color is definitely darker than this.

Mike went with a full custom frameset, stem included.  Just wait until I put the carbon fiber chain stay protector on this frame, it'll be full scale rock'n'ride then.  Check back in a couple of days for the famous backyard photorama.  Chao amigos.
