Changing frames for size, but same frame brand, any concerns?

Alright, I finally found a larger road frame. I currently have a Bianchi Talladega 53cm with full Ultegra and I just purchased a Talladega in a 57, are there any draw backs to swapping parts to the new frame? Or do I just need to find a solid bike shop that I can trust to do good work? thanks

Assuming the new frame came with a fork, and both forks use same HS types, and steerer diameter,should be no problems.

I did this a few years ago. I bought a new frame and transferred my Ultegra stuff from one to the other. Since I wasn't going from one the same manufactures frames to another I had to replace a few more things than you'll have to. I had to get a new front derailleur and a new seat post. You may want to buy some new cables.
