I like the feeling of having each mountain bike equipped with everything I need to work on it \[under normal circumstances\] so I can just grab it and go. That feeling is worth the extra weight I carry that I rarely use. Otherwise I'd need to assess each ride and determine if I need my tool bag or I could ride without it. That process would be annoying enough to eliminate any minor benefit I get from riding a bike that's 1-1.5 lbs lighter. Not riding with a pack these last few years has been great. I just equip each bike with its own frame bag(s) and tools. No moving stuff around. I do have to buy a few extra tools, but nothing that's particularly expensive.
