About Me

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.

Fabio Aru-Vuelta

It looks like Fabio Aru is gonna win the Vuelta.  On the next to last stage and on the penultimate climb of the day he finally cracked Tom Dumoulin.  Only 6 seconds seperated them when they started but Aru put something like 3-4 minutes into Dumoulin and completely knocked him off the podium.  I was happy to see Aru when however felt bad for Dumoulin after he raced such a perfect tour.  It would have been nice if he could've at least stood on the podium. Oh well, that's racing.

I'd be smiling bigger than this if I was him.  I used to smile that much just walking around Spain.  Aru could easily win the Tour in the next couple of years.  He's young, fights hard, and never gives up.  Also, he's a motocrosser.  You don't want to mess with those guys. They're crazy!

He's a photo of an old friend, Jess Parker. Not sure exactly where this was taken however Paul Isley was the one to capture the moment.  Great shot Paul!

The moment I saw this pic I immediately thought of the song by Queen, Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon. Enjoy the day.
