You should consider both a warmup gear in the 78-82 gi range based on 27" nominal tire diameter and racing gears ranging from 88-92 for various tracks and weather conditions. I have a 16T cog for warmup and a 14T cog for racing, combined with 46,47,48 chainrings. Since you already have a 15T cog, you could use it with the 47T chainring to give you the legal gearing at your home track. Also, you could initially skip the 48T chainring, since a 92gi gearing is pretty high for most situations. I do almost all of my racing on 47x14 (90gi), which with 47x16, gives me about 79gi for warmup.
