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.

Giro d'Italia

Here is a picture of little Al after Stage 6 of the Tour of Italy.  He was caught up in a crash in the finish line sprint and ended up with a dislocated shoulder.  He couldn't even put on the Maglia Rosa while standing on the podium but still managed to start today's stage.

I just finished watching Stage 7, which was the longest stage of the race this year at something like 264 km, and Al was there at the finale if my eyes didn't deceive me.
I don't think there is anyone actually tough enough to beat him when he is 100%.  Tomorrow's stage has a mountain-top finish, and so if he doesn't fall off the pace tomorrow, I can't imagine there is much hope for anyone while he will continually heal. Talk about getting inside your opponent's head.  Alberto Contador is one fierce competitor. This is a fun race to watch. It might be as good as the Vuelta a couple of years ago in 2012.
