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.

Pricey Bikes

Just recently noticed an add for this Colnago C-60 Special Edition bike and the price is like $14,999.99 or something and it immediately made me think of the Eddy Merckx that I posted a few days ago.  There are lots of bikes these days pushing the $10,000 price tags and it blows my mind, then there are these bikes that go for $15,000 plus.  I guess they're meant to hang on the wall or something because I would never ride one of them unless one of them were given to me to ride and I don't think thats gonna happen.  I would like to see if they ride better than one of my bikes though.  Maybe one day there will be a road bike shootout in Road Bike Action magazine,  the Merckx vs. MEECH issue.

"You're going down!"

Ever notice how these high-end bikes always have Campagnolo components on them? Alright, alright, I won't stir the pot with you Shimano and SRAM people even though Campagnolo is better.  Shimano and SRAM works just fine, usually, however it just doesn't look as good. Am I allowed to say ATMO here or is that 15 year old internet slang copywritten by someone?

This Colnago V-1 or whatever it is only cost around $4799.  Where'd the Campy go?
