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.

Recent Brazing Work






These photos aren't much different than any other brazing shots that I post but I'm determined to turn these into the nicest fillets I've done to date.  Only time will tell though.
I tried to slow things down a bit and focus on laying them down as smooth as I could in order to have only minimal cleanup work.  Few more braze-ons and then the real work starts.



I've had this older rear wishbone lug laying around for a while now and decided to incorporate it into this frame.  Now I'm looking for a nice fork lug that will match up to it nicely.
