AJ - Great article and something that i'm constantly thinking about riding a 40+lb trail bike. Something you don't mention is rider weight / bike weigh. I'm ~93kg therefore should be able to "tolerate" a heavier bike than you at 73kg which is nearly 30% extra. Therefore my 41lb Murmur equates to a 32lb bike for you (given the same relative muscle mass).
Where this argument falls apart is on kids bikes which are (generally) relatively heavy for their weight / strength.
