I don't worry about bike weight within a reasonable range. From the data I have my PRs on a 28lb all carbon FS enduro bike and a 34lb metal enduro bike are all in a similar range and mostly down to fitness. I do pay attention to bike fit/ergonomics/suspension setup a lot and to the rolling resistance/grip of my tires. That seems to make much more impact on my performance than +/-2lbs. I have also been moving from a hyro pack to all water/gear on the bike the last 5-6 years and I have noticed I like the stability that imparts to the bike a lot. The machine tracks very well and it's not easily knocked off line.
