About Me

Mountain Home, Arkansas, United States
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.

Giro Update

Vincenzo Nibali did much better in the time trial than I anticipated and ended up with the pink jersey.  Bradley Wiggins did a pretty good ride however ended up second to Alex Dowsett of Moviestar and only managed to put 11 seconds into Nibali.  Cadel Evans is still in good position but Ryder Hesjedal had a bad ride and ended up like 17th overall.  Not quite sure what the GC looks like at this moment but it should be pretty tight. I think its Nibali, Evans, Gesink, and then Wiggins all within about a minute and a handful of seconds of each other. 
This is Alex Dowsett and I had never even heard the name before but that shows what I know.  Anyway, I wanted to put a photo of the stage winner up out of respect for the excellent ride he did.  If I had just beat all the best in the world in a time trial i would definitely like having my picture up.  
Thanks for stopping by.


Perhaps Wiggins put it best when he said, succinctly, “It’s going to be a hell of a race for the next two weeks.”
