Just thought of another thing to add to my list of stuff to look for in a useful bike.

No integrated headset.
Just dumb, that's all I have to say about integrated headsets. I mean, pressing a bearing directly into your frame with no cup? Just madness! You're one wrong move away from buying a new frame. Once again a case of racing-influenced bikes not being built for durability.
