Triple to double

I run a triple chainset on my Flash and want to change to a double

I have an XT front derailler with SRAM XO gear and XO gripshift

Will I have to change my front derailler?

What else will I have to consider?

Thanks

    it depends on what you are doing.

    normally throw away a ring set mech stops and use.

    but what are you really thinking of doing.

    a double could be anything. granny middle. middle and big. a real 10spd double crankset......

    want to switch to a true 10 spd double crank-set if possible like the new flash's are specced with.

    and the rest of the gears are staying 9spd?
