It used to be 5kg, but with disc and aero it's more like sub-7 is truly awesome now :P

My 3.2 kg bike has an aero stem, fork, saddle and wheels. One can have aero and light weight.

That’s not an understatement!! All 3 of my bikes are under 14.0 lb (6.36 kg), but I’ve always thought of WW bike’s under 13 lb!!

IMO it isn't about the weight, it's how you go about achieving whatever weight you end up with. It could be a 4kg tuned-to-the-last special, or a touring tandem that is as light as possible using the same ideas as the 4kg road bike, but still only makes it down to 14kg or whatever because of durability and reliability etc. I wouldn't call something where someone's just thrown 20 grand at it and ended up with a superlight, but completely 'stock' build a true WW build.
