BB30 Crankset Install

I've never installed a BB30 crankset. Presently there is a BB30 crank on my bike. I'm going to replace it with another BB30 crank. Here's the question; since the bearings are already pressfit i shouldnt need any special tools to install the new crankset, right? Should just slide in and tighten with an allen wrench?

Removing: Quarq S975 BB30
installing: Force bb30 crankset
Bike: CAAD10

The crank set will slide in by hand. Remember the wavy washer. Torque to spec. Ride.

I actually have a CAAD10 and did the same thing. I would suggest having a rubber mallet around as it makes life a lot easier and a torque wrench so you can the BB securely torqued down.
