|Component swap question...||peterjh9|

I am planning on purchasing a new bike within a month or so. The bike I plan on getting has a triple ring Tiagra crankset. I wish to swap this out (at time of purchase) for a double ring Tiagra crank.
Is this possible without swapping any other components (IE..shifters, derailleurs)?
Thanks a bunch

|you will need a new bottom bracket
you have to align chainrings with rear cassette properly
the triple will not allow for proper alignment
why Tiagra?? why not use better quality--105 or ultegra
look on ebay for good prices

|Mainly, cost, and me trying to keep that cost down.
Secondly, I am hoping that the shop that I am purchasing the bike from, will do the swap outs free of charge. They take the stock triple for themselves, and give me a comparable double. They can then align the crankset et al.
