If you plan on climbing mountains, triple are the best.

For wheels, get handbuilt wheels with Mavic CXP-33 rims and reasonable hubs (Ultegra, Dura-Ace, or DT or King if you have spare money). The Ksyrium wheels are very popular and nice, but they have high tension and this is a pain when you break a spoke (just broke one on the Death Ride). Open Pro rims are also popular but not super strong, I keep killing them. CXP-33 are strong, I never killed one - just ordered a few from England. Beware of wheels with low spoke count or paired spokes, when you break a spoke the wheel will be completely off and you won't be able to ride.
