About Me

My name is Dimitri Harris and I have been building frames for over 6 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, its 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 Mountain Home, 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.

New MEECH Cycling Uniform

The new MEECH cycling clothing just came in a couple of days ago from Nalini so I had to go give it a try.  I've been wearing alot of Nalini the last couple of years so it wasn't a big surprise for me.  It fits me well and has always held up pretty well and so I hope this clothing is no different.  I started on this project back in March if you can believe it and while most everything went pretty smooth I had a little trouble getting a couple of logos in the 
'vector format' that was needed.  Anyway it all finally got done and the clothing turned out very nice and so it was worth the wait.  Here are a couple of photos of me semi-posing to show off the new gear.  "What is semi-posing?"  Its where you planned on just posing but in the end it turned into real work, in this case on the bike.



Ok, I admit that this was not work however when you turn around and start to come back you actually have to pedal.

Check out those glow-in-the-daylight tires.  Oh PA-leeez.  You can't tell that this is much of a  hill however about 50 meters back its like 30% grade.  After we got done shooting the photos I went out for a little ride and noticed my chain dropping when I would stand up.  Turned out one of the links had been pulled off one of the pins.  This chain was one that only had a few miles on it on a road bike, so then I put it on this cross rig and had to add a few links.  I'm notorious for piecing together chains.  
Look at Dizzy dropping me like a sack of potatos.  This dog can run all day long.




Got to say thanks to the sponsors.  Jim Little and Jeremy Ellis from Little & Associates Architect Firm in Jonesboro were a couple of the guys that helped me get started on this project.  Also, Bob Cook from Blue Ribbon Fly Shop and Angler's Coffee Cafe here in Mountain Home.  Thanks for the support guys.
Handmade bicycles right here in beautiful Mountain Home, Arkansas.  Also a big thanks to my wife Anne for shooting the photos for me.  Thanks baby.  Man, my arm looks pretty skinny here.  Think I'm gonna go do a few curls.

  1. Looks good D. Is that a yellow acid wash look? I cant tell in the photos? Are there any available for purchase?

  2. I never thought of it like that but it is kind of a acid wash look. Actually its a marble looking design that was created for my business cards by Stan Kortan at Art Advertising in Jonesboro.. He worked really hard on them. You can purchase them if you like. I only had a few made and the large are already gone however, I have plenty of medium and x-large, and I may have some large vests leftover. Let me know if you want anything and I'll hold it for you. thanks.
