Since you are only 26 and this is retirement money, you don't need bonds at this point so long as you don't mind riding out market downturns. Over the next 30 - 40 years you're almost certain to see a couple periods like 2000-2002. If you can deal with that and still sleep at night, you can leave everything in stocks. Your plan looks sound. As you get older you can gradually shift some of the money over to a bond index for diversification. Congratulations on getting an early start on retirement savings.
