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.

Next Up-Nate's Ride

I've had Nate's frame in the jig now for quite a few days and was just waiting to finish Scott's bike up before proceeding.  Got everything mocked up and tacked the rear end this afternoon and I'm hoping to have it all brazed up tomorrow.  

This is a road bike similar to the last frame but with a little extra tire clearance in order to throw on some 28-30c skins for an extra smooth ride, and we're gonna tuck it all under some standard road brake calipers. This sounds like some Paris-Roubaix stuff going on to me.  I believe Nate spent a little time in Belgium on the pro cyclocross circuit a handful of years ago and it sounds like he may have some unfinished business with the cobblestone streets over there. I can't lie, I would love to see a MEECH rolling across some cobbles.  Seeing people putting these bikes to the test is what I enjoy most.  Its why I make them.




These bottom bracket shells always come pre-drilled, however I always take some extra meat out of them in order to shave grams.  You can see the difference from the photo above. There may even be enough space there should you ever want to convert it to electronic shifting.




The usual water-tight miters with a little scuffing for extra adhesion.











Thanks for stopping by and feel free to check back in a day or so for some updates.
