Look out for the following: 4130 Chromoly frame and forks, 48 spoke wheels with double or triple wall rims, 14mm axles, three piece cranks, and generally good quality parts (Odyssey, Dia Compe, Dia Tech, FSA are some good parts companies). Of course it depends what you want the bike to do (ie 14mm axles aren't neccasary for flatland, 36h front wheel is OK for dirt). If you're just starting don't worry too much about being specific, just get a good bike with four pegs, two brakes and a Gyro.
