Chainring Size for new crankset

Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Chainring Size for new crankset

Hey-
We are bringing in custom cranks and want to know your opinion on chainring size.
You don't have to post it here (who wants to look at 10 pages of 44...46...48) We put a poll up here:

Thanks for your help!

The most versatile number is 47. You can pair it with 13 or 14 for a track gear, use a 16 or 17 for the street, or higher if you like a low gear. Those who skid will always have an essentially infinite number of skid patches.

47 is definitely the number to hit.
