I've posted these pics before, but they are obviously applicable to the conversation. Not REALLY lightweight, but aping the spirit of lightweight stuff. Here is one of the Shimano Adamas AX equipped bikes that David mentions below ... a Huffy Aerowind:

Wow, I'd forgotten all about that TT saddle with the stopwatch in the nose! Too big and probably too many hoops to jump through to get that bike from Germany to Canada (not to mention the $$). But nice shape, along with the original and hard to find pale blue brake hoods, and a really shiny crankset. :-)

I was going to comment earlier that I think most of the cheap AX groups that were found on the department store bikes that Garth Libre was originally referring to were Adamas AX groups, and really you _don't_ want those. :-P
