Skinny tubes, 2 colours, maybe 3, large blocks of colour preferable, not adverse to some of the day glow schemes that have been popular recently, but they can be hit and miss, you really need to see them in the flesh.
Most oversized stuff is awful, head tubes, bottom brackets, etc.
Not pointy like a stealth jet too.
Cannondale CAAD 10s are a nice shape, but I'm not into the colours or pressfit stuff.
I'd have bought a Ritchey Swiss Cross if it was a road bike.
Oh, and metal is preferable to CF.
 
surly cross check?
most surlys come in one normal color and one garish color

Would prefer road, but not a bad shout.
Also, wow, traveller's check!

Pacer looks nice too, if a little on the heavy side, but it should be pretty tough I suppose. Even better, Bangkok has a Surly dealer.

well, steel will have a weight penalty. but if you don't want pressfit and something on the higher end, surly, jamis and a few other of the more botique brands are your options.
