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.

  1. What's the weight, pls Meech? Looks great work. And why titled Cheesecake? Fork to eat with?

  2. Hey Daniel. Sorry to take so long getting back with you. I've been sidetracked with my son's school vacation. It weighs about 780 grams with uncut steerer but will be around 650-700 after it's cut. I was out of ideas for a title so I just put 'cheesecake' because back in the days of kitchen work I used to make a lot of them. Normally associate the term 'smooth' with cheesecake so I guess that's where I was coming from, but I like your thinking as well. Cheers!

  3. Your head your thinking! Thanks for the reply. Why I asked is I'm a weight weenie because I have to be as I lack wattage. Keep up your good work, and your rambling.

  4. Thanks for stopping by Daniel! Most of my steel frames weigh right around 3.5 lbs and the steel forks with 1" steerer are usually 1.5 lbs. and the 1 1/8" are closer to 2 lbs. Anyway, I get them as light as I can so long as it doesn't put anybody in jeopardy. Thanks again!
