the chain and the cassette as well?

I have rode about 2000kms on the current chainset. I am changing the cranks from a triple to a double. Can you tell me if I should change the chain and casette as well?

    Ideally yes as the chain will be worn and maybe the cassette as well.
    However in the real world you could just change the chainset and see if it runs smoothly with no noise before changing he chain and cassette :D

    Should be fine, chain and cassette shouldn't be too worn.
    I like bikes...
