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.

Head Tube is Wrapped

Today I managed to get the front end of my frame wrapped and bagged.  It turned out pretty good.  Everything seems good and tight, feels pretty solid to me.  The head tube looks consistent with the exception of being able to see some of the other layers under the final layer.  I know what caused it and I'll make sure it doesn't happen again.  Basically what happened was I put one layer on top of another and the ends didn't have any overlap so you end up with a little extra height on the corners and it shows through.

Here it is after pulling everything off.  Its gonna require a bit of sanding on any rough spots but for the most part its pretty clean...

...except for this seam down the middle.  No worries.  

I'm gonna try the seat cluster tomorrow if everything goes smooth.  Thanks for stopping by.
