No worries, Tom...  grin

I've done the same time and time again...

Do you have as well a steering tube goin' through that window? or are top and bottom trees just held top and bottom w/o a tube in between?

Patrick,
I have a 3/8" S.S. threaded rod which has been turned down to the root diameter, around 5/16", which applies the required preload on the tapered roller bearings.  It does not impair my vision.  The only problem is loss of peripheral vision between the sideline flags which I believe are 1/4 mile apart.  With a bit of side wind, this can unknowingly move the bike across the course.  The event I now attend (World of Speed) has a centerline painted on the course which keeps me aligned.
