If the bike is 4lb heavier, and any of these strava PR's are hills, then you would have been even faster on your lighter bike. Not sure what the point is here, you had a good ride, maybe the group was faster, maybe you had a tailwind, maybe you ate your Wheaties today, it doesn't matter. If you rode a 4 lb lighter bike, and did the same course under the same conditions, your times would have been faster. Unless of course your bikes are not set up the same or the position is not optimized, etc. etc. But, all other things being equal, a 4-lb lighter bike will be faster, especially going uphill.
