At home, I usually check pretty good before I head out for a ride, so it gets a pretty close inspection then. However, when I lock up at school or downtown, I don't really get down on hands and knees to give a pre-ride check but usually:
1. Check tire pressure (maybe someone let my tires out).
2. Glance at F+R quick releases (maybe somebody really does not like me).
3. Test brakes (give em a squeeze, maybe I gave someone a bad look)
4. Give a quick drop test (see if my rear derailleur falls off- if it does, look around to see who's laughing).
