If you want to race, go with a double. End of story. Unless you live on the side of a mountain or something, you probably won't have a problem using a 39x23 as a bailout gear. If that's not enough though, you can always get a 12-25 or 27 cassette. That should be enough for just about anybody to climb just about anything.
double for me, chocolate with m&m's - for serious racers nmclimbo
