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.

Wurster's Stem

Yesterday I did a little custom stem build for Mike's road frame.  I used Paragon's stem building supplies because they're top shelf components and make it super-easy, not to mention they make a great looking stem.  I basically just have to tack it together, check to make sure its straight, and then braze it up.  This one is good to go.

Fresh outta the oven.  That face-plate is gonna get a little custom engraving before long.

This dog is beefy.  Not as lightweight as these newer aluminum and carbon stems but most definitely built to last a lifetime.  Everything is finished now except I'm fixing to go braze a seat lug on and clean that up and then maybe have some photos later this afternoon of the whole thing.  Its about time to warm up the paint booth.  I don't think thats gonna be too difficult.  See ya in a bit.
