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.

Pinstriping by Cory McMahon

I let a local buddy of mine do a little hand pinstriping on the carbon frame.  I worked with Cory McMahon at the 870 Bistro until here lately when it just recently closed.  I enjoyed the working environment and the extra money, not to mention all the lasagna, pizza, and everything else I was eating, but they just didn't have enough business to pay all the expenses.  I'm happy to be back focusing on frame building the majority of the time and am gonna work at amping up MEECH. 

Cory is a local artist who hand paints signs and just about anything else that you'd want done.  He's got a pretty steady hand apparently by the looks of his work.  His dad Mark is the one who does all the engraving work that I use on my BB shells and what not.  I had been planning on getting Cory to do some work on a frame and the carbon frame offered the perfect opportunity.  Here are a couple of photos to check out.  Enjoy the weekend!

Maybe I can get this thing built up here shortly and give it a little test ride.  Thanks for stopping by.
