things to try to avoid: hi-ten steel, unsealed anything, anything biggerthan 36/13 gear ratio
things to get: chromoly steel, sealed bearings, 36/13 or smaller gear ratio
iv heard good things about the dk helio, i rode a subrosa for a while it was solid. most bikes with chromo frames are solid
if you can afford chromo make sure it says 100% cromo frame, not main frame.
if you posted your budget i could give you better advice
if you dont find anything at your bike shop check
they got just about everything you could want or need.
