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.

Interesting Tire Info

I knew the moment I spun out of the neighborhood last summer on my new Schwalbee Duranos that I was having to push harder. It felt like my brakes were dragging the rim.  This proves it.  Last place. But they have been bullet proof when it comes to flats.  I give 'em that.

  1. Hey Meech-does being able to cruise at 40kph really even apply to you with any tire? And besides, how fast are those skinny things on a muddy cx course??

  2. There was a time when I could cruise at 40 kph for a fair amount of time but those days seemed to have passed me by. But if a tire could help me I would most definitely invest in it. Your second question does not apply to me because I don't ride in the mud. I prefer to go faster than that. However, my favorite tire size of all time is 32c pumped up to about 70 psi.
