perfectly normal: after climbing 90% for 50k youd be dead no matter what your weght is.

So weight win is just good for your motivation.
1.5kg for me with this model on 13km climb is 80s.
I think stifness becomes equal important when your bike is sub 8.5 kg and it costs more than € 4000, because all parts are high end and lighter or stiffer. But in my opinion only the BB, cranks, bar and stem and frame (at the BB) have to be stiff.
