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.

28th Annual Memphis Cyclocross Championship

Got a couple of pics from the 28th Annual Memphis Cyclocross Championships that happens to be one of the oldest cyclocross races running.  Actually I think it may be the oldest,  Velonews did an article on it a couple of years ago.  Its hosted by Outdoors Inc. and its right on the banks of the Mississippi River so you better hold your line.  I hear there are some man-eating sized catfish in there.

Here is a shot of the podium for the Masters 45+ A race.  My good buddy and MEECH factory racer Larry Yancey took second place honors.  Congrats on the great ride Larry! If Yancey keeps it on two wheels he'll usually end up on the podium more times than not.  He's been known to crash on occasion.  Sometimes he crashes and still gets on the podium. On this day there was none of that, just a good solid race against some great cross racers.  Congrats to the winner and the rest of the racers there, sorry I don't know your names. I've done this race a few times myself and its always a good time.

Here's an actual race pic.  Yancey likes the outside lines cause they're usually the fastest.  You'll never catch this guy following.  He's constantly trying to get around anything thats in front of him.  If you ever manage to get in front of him it can be pretty miserable, because if you know him at all you know he'll never let up until the checkered flag is out.  He's constantly pushing forward. Thats why I signed him on my team, so the pain in my legs would stop. 

I'm working on getting some photos of the current build up.  Give me a couple of days and I should have something.  Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Other guys are winner Forrest Owens and Shayne Smith. I had those guys covered until the last lap over the pyramid. I probably had too much air in my tires for the slick surface! My MEECH was flawless as usual.

  2. Yeah, i can imagine by the final lap that Pyramid climb would be getting old. Thanks for riding a MEECH all these years.
