Another question..... Are there any specific requirements regarding the diameter of the headtube as to whether i can install an integrated, semi-integrated etc headset?

Yes, there are specific requirements (but I don't know them off the top of my head). You might want to check ceeway.com and see what kind of cutters they offer.

Here's a link to Park Tool's headset specifications: Conventional Threadless Headsets (http://www.parktool.com/repair/readhowto.asp?id=68#threadless).
Integrated headsets require a bevel/lip or various other ledges on the inside of the headtube to hold the bearings. The trend has been to replace integrated headsets with more standardized threadless headsets.
