About Me

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.

Strade Bianche 2015

http://www.steephill.tv/players/youtube3/?title=Last 10 Km&dashboard=strade-bianche&id=I7s-9S1g6V0&start=3&yr=2015

Here is the last 10k of Strade Bianche which took place today.  I've never paid much attention to this race in the past but after watching the final hour this morning it has become one of my new favorite races to watch.  Got plenty of italian rolling countryside, with short punchy hills, and a few gravel/dirt sections that make for an interesting race.

The weather finally broke here yesterday and the snow is just about melted.  Its in the low 60's here today and I'm itching to ride.  I've managed somehow to steer clear of the junk food and I'm ready to start reaping the benefits.  I couldn't help but to notice that most of these riders in Strade Bianche are in quite a bit better shape than I am at the moment.  I'm thinking that they may have put in some secret miles this winter without telling me. Hope you're getting to ride some miles this weekend.  Ciao.
