As usual, I think the best way to consider this is through energy; in moving from rest at the top of a hill (height h), the conservation of energy applies between potential energy at the top and kinetic at the bottom: Mgh = MV^2 + losses(due to aero and rolling resistance) therefore V = sqrt( gh - losses/M ) as losses are not proportional to mass, then ...
