Can I use a triple crankset on a BB designed for double cranksets if I take the small ring off the crank and use it as a double? (it is an ultegra BB and a tiagra crank, for cyclocross/beater bike)

The trigra crank uses a tapered spindle,and the current ultegra 9 speed BB is splined. The answer, is generally yes if the BB is compatible and the right length to give correct chainline.
