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. You can email me at meech151@hotmail.com or call (870)897-6703 or visit www.meechcustombicycles.com Thanks.

Time Factory Tour


This is an interesting little video of the Time bicycle factory.  They are probably my favorite frame brand these days.  I used to be a fan of Look however over the last couple of years I've been liking the Time style much more than Look.  I prefer straight tubes and I'm not into all those curves and arches everyone is putting into their frames.  The shortest distance between two points is a straight line and that equals less weight.  As you'll see in this video, Time weaves their own carbon, it blows me away.  You can't own a bicycle frame making process more than that.  Thats like milking a cow for your bowl of cereal in the morning.  Hope you enjoy it.

 If you have a little extra time you can check out this more in depth video.
