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.

Contador Racing La Vuelta

I stumbled onto this photo on Facebook this morning and at first I thought, "Hey, there's Jimmy from the 5th grade."  Jimmy was the guy that used to sit a couple of rows over and we'd shoot spitballs at one another through a pen that we had taken the insides out of. Then after a closer look I realized that it was actually Alberto Contador.  Turns out he changed his mind and is gonna race La Vuelta.  He doesn't sound like he's planning on lighting it up or anything, sounds like its more for training and maybe a stage victory, however, don't forget he won the Giro on just 9 days notice.  

Even though I knew Al was a little guy I had no idea how small he actually is. There's nothing there.  Its hard to believe that someone so small could be so strong and so powerful, and there is no way you could pack any more fight and toughness into such a small frame.  He could make the third week really interesting.  Won't be long now.
Hasta luego.
