Tarptent Moment DW might be worth a look as a lighter alternative to the Big Agnes. It's plenty roomy and about 300g lighter at 1kg. It also pitches with 2 pegs not 6 so if pretty easy to get into tough spots. I've slept over 300 nights in mine during various bike trips and its going strong. I've also found quilts to be better value for space than a full sleeping bag. I do live in Aus though so it's kinda hard to find conditions below freezing. As far as your experience goes, it sounds about right. I feel like there's a whole Instagram crowd that has glorified bikepacking as the be all and end all of riding. For the most part I've found riding singletrack on a fully loaded bike kinda sucks haha.
