I think LeeDrOiD Mod might be good for you. Froyo with sense and not much extras. Just need to format and make ext partition to your sd card and you are good to go.
Edit: SPEED READ IS BAD... sorry. I thought u was looking for sense rom. .. lol
Edit 2: LeeDrOiD is still good point to start. I dont run sense either but adw, but i still like to use htc calendar etc.
