Builder of the Week: Dimitri Harris of Meech Custom Bicycles

Dimitri Harris is the man and builder behind Meech Custom Bicycles. Originally from Arkansas, Dimitri started studying and practicing frame building about 3 years ago. At that time, he headed out to Rifle, Colorado and studied with Koichi Yamaguchi, who Dimitri claims to be one of the most interesting people he has ever met. Cyclocross frames are his favorite frame/specialty because of their versatility; however, Dimitri is not a one-stop shop, he also builds road, mountain, and single-speed custom frames. Dimitri is a very humble and grateful person, always wishing thanks to everyone who has helped him build his business including family, builders, customers, machinists, painters, etc.
