WTB: 1991 25" Cannondale ST bike or frameset

It's been a minute since I made my last incredibly specific request.

I've been looking for an old Cannondale tourer for a while without any luck. I've honed in on the '91 models due to the ST600 and 1000 being equipped with 700c cantilevers while retaining the early aesthetics. I'm assuming this year also had 130mm or 128mm rear dropout spacing? Correct me if I'm wrong. I don't need the whole bike, just the frame, and fork, really, but if you have a whole bike I'd be open to that as well.
Philadelphia area, fairly regularly in NYC, willing to travel that much to look.

Where in PA? Are you willing to travel to NH?

I have an '88 ST 400 but it does not have cantilevers. I equipped it with Paul centerpulls and it probably stops just as well if not better.



I would want to keep the saddle and probably the Cannondale rear rack. At the moment the chain needs to be replaced. I have it set up with 130mm rear wheel and 8 speed cassette. PM if interested and we can chat about particulars.

I'm just outside of Philly, so NH is a bit far. I'd thought about putting center-pulls on one of the side-pull STs (and actually came across a post of yours) but the rack mount interference put me off of the idea.

There is an awesome lavender 1987 ST...62cm...for the cost of shipping in the possession of Mad Honk right now.

It has plenty of clearance though it takes side pulls. It is super light and originally came from a gentleman who doted on it for years. I believe it is spaced 126 and came with 27 wheels.

Keep it in mind. I'll be traveling south in November and again in December and can bring it with me for a drop-off at a pre-arranged spot in PA, NJ, DE, or MD.

I'll certainly be keeping both of these in mind; though, my first choice is still one of the cantilevered ones. Maybe in part because they're less common.

The '91 catalog shows 27" wheels and cantilevers.
There are reports of them working with 700c wheels, though...
Dunno about the spacing but my money's on 126 mm.

The '92 catalog has the old frame with the high-up integrated seat post clamp ... and 700c wheels for all models

The '93 catalog has the new frames with the separate clamp and 700c.. and the functional but not-so-pretty unicrown forks.

OCD yours,

Im looking at the 91 catalog right now and it lists the 1000 with 700x35, and the 600 with 700x28.

You are correct, my bad.
I was looking at the '1991 (Early Version)' catalog download from vintage cannondale.. but that link gives you a file named 1990V2.pdf, which I didn't notice.

Man, that hurts... there is a clean and complete 1991 ST600 near me for $300 on FB marketplace... that's the size of my H400 snow bike and it's just too big for my 6' height...
Bonus question, what's the dropout spacing on these? My '96 model, bought in April 95, has 135 mm. I think the same is true for my buddy's 93 T700... but what about the older frames... when did the 128/130 start?

Thanks, and sorry about the slip-up,
-mathias

I just stumbled upon this piece of information, provided by Ronno6

That pretty much clears it up:

"I beg to differ with you on one point: you stated that there is NO difference among differing levels of ST frames.
In 1987 that was true, as well as all prior years thru 1989.
I own 2 different 27" frame ST bikes form 1990: an ST400 and an ST600.
Both have cantilever brakes, but the rear dropout spacing is different.
The ST400has 6 speeds, 126mm rear dropouts. Serial # begins with "6"
The ST600 has 7 speed freehub with 130mm dropout spacing. Serial number begins with "0"
I also own a 1992 T1000 that has 135mm spacing."
