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.

Health Food

Ok, I know this doesn't have anything to do with bicycles or frame building but if you classified it under the heading "Health Food" then I suppose I might get away with it.  I've had trouble getting work done due to the holidays and waiting on materials to show up. But now the holidays are over and my supplies should be on the way so hopefully I'll have some frame building pics before to long.  Anyway, I stumbled onto this video today for homemade gyros  and I just had to try it.  Its not anymore complicated than making a meat loaf, actually that all it is, and the taste is excellent.  The gyros have always been a huge favorite of mine, so whenever I come across them I usually buy one, but these homemade ones blow the street gyros away.  You can spice up the meat any way you like, make your own tzatziki sauce, and this kalamata salsa will set it over the top.  And then if you'd like to take it to the 'Outtareach Level',  just sprinkle some crumbled feta over it.

Next new thing I'm gonna try to make is tamales.  Sounds easy enough, huh? 

I gotta go.  Sweet Virginia is telling me to get back out in the shop and build some frames.
