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?
'''96 Litespeed Catalyst, '05 Litespeed Firenze, '06 Litespeed Tuscany, '12 Surly Pacer, All are 3x8,9 or 10. It is hilly around here!

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.
