Bicycle weight does matter, but perhaps not as much as you'd think, unless you're in peak physical condition and racing. With bicycles, the weight of the bike is only a fraction of the weight of the rider, while with automobiles, the opposite is true. It's often more cost effective to reduce body mass rather than bicycle mass, and depending on your BMI, it can be healthier as well.
