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.

Gravel Road Racer

Here are a few pics of a frame I just finished painting.  Its a 60 cm road frame but has a little extra tire clearance between the fork and stays to accomodate a larger tire, up to 32c.  The brake bridges are positioned a little higher and a caliper with a little longer pull will give you plenty of clearance.  I have some 30c cross tires that would be perfect and you could take this thing almost anywhere you please.  The chainstays are 420 mm and i actually fit a 35c cross tire in between them but it only left a couple of millimeters clearance for the tire so I would definitely run a bit smaller tire.  Another good tire choice would be an all-weather 28c.

Bringheli semi-horizontal dropouts with adjuster screws.

I'm waiting on some head badges to arrive to fill in this blank spot.  I think the brass badge is gonna look nice right inside this star here.

This frame is for sale if anyone is interested.
Thanks for stopping by.
