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.

Tour de France Contenders

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/othersports/cycling/tour-de-france/10144509/Tour-de-France-2013-the-incredible-rise-of-Chris-Froome-and-how-he-was-almost-killed-by-a-hippo.html

Chris Froome has won just about everything so far this year but its the Tour that he wants.  After reading the story above he appears to be a pretty tough dude.





You can bet your gonna see alot of this in the mountains.

It appears as though Little Al has something on his mind here. I just included this photo to show how determined Alberto Contador can be.  If both of these guys can stay upright and avoid accidents, Contador and Froome that is, this could be one of the hardest fought tours ever.  Sounds like both of these guys have really strong teams and thats what is gonna make these guys rise above the others.

Even though Contador and Froome are considered the main protagonists in this year's race its only fair to say there are many rider's that are gonna win stages and its not fair to just omit them.  I'm guessing the main contenders aren't gonna let Rodriguez or Valverde get too far up the road and it wouldn't be too hard to imagine Cadel Evans on the podium either.  Andy's back.  I don't figure he'll be a threat to the overall but with some good legs he could mess things all up in the mountains, afterall he's got nothing to lose.  Get ready for the 100th edition of the Tour de France.  Hope its a good one. Enjoy!
