You'll need a couple of special tools too (if you don't already know, if you do then stop reading now)
An 8mm allen wrench
A crank puller
A bottom bracket tool
Some anti-sieze compound or a good lube.
Remember the non-drive side is reverse thread, so the righty tighty only works on the righty bikey. (meaning drive side of the bike)
Some people also will put a couple wraps of teflon tape, but I only use this if creaking is a problem. Usually the anti-sieze or grease eliminates any creaking in aluminum frame.
