nashbar chain rings

Would I be ok with putting Nashbar brand chain rings to my shimano crank.

I have a SRAM chain. Would there be any problems with skipping etc?

Match the bolt circle diameter, buy a new chain..

BTW Nashbar doesn't make anything it sells, they just reship what they buy in bulk
a big enough order to have their name printed on it.

I haven't been impressed with the build quality of Nashbar-brand cassettes in the past and would *guess* that their chainrings would be similar. Is it just a cost issue, or did you have some other reason for trying the Nashbar rings?

I also have not been impressed with the Nashbar branded cassettes. I don't know about their chainrings. I have been impressed with the Nashbar branded 9 speed chains.

Their cassettes are, AFAIK, rebranded SunRace and they are functional if not great. I use them on my "rain bike" where they are continually abused and any cassette would have a short service life so I might as well go cheap.

Nashbar's chains are rebranded KMC's which have a good reputation under their actual makers name too.

I'd be highly surprised if the Nashbar rings shifted as good as Shimano.
