Please guess the weight of this bike

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Long story, but it would help if I got your educated guess on the weight of this bike:
Trek 2300 Carbon Fiber Alpha Series with Rolf Vector wheelset

Thanks.

What do we win if we get it right?

*cue announcer*

...A Brand New Car!!!!

Without knowing all the components, my educated (stop laughing) guess is 21 pounds.

I'll put it between 20-21 because it's an older model year.

My bike uses the same exact frame and currently I'm using wheels that are as light or lighter than those. Depending on SIZE, its between 20-23. Its not below 20, and certainly nowhere near 17.8. I'm sure of it.
