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.

I want some new shoes.

Here is a pic I stole off www.velonews.com from the Eurobike Show.  These are the new 
Fizik R1 shoes and the style is right up my alley.  I love the look and they're made with kangaroo leather so you know you'll be bouncing all over the competition like that kangaroo that Sylvester 'the Putty Tat' used to take a beating from.  One thing I don't like about them is the buckle, i hate buckles.  Three velcro straps or laces but please no buckles, thats just my opinion of course.  Oh, two things I don't like, they're $400, and thats just for the left shoe, but they give you the right one for free.  No matter, before I will be sporting a pair of these they will probably no longer be made.
