Cannondales and rear spacing

Out of curiosity, which Cannondale models, if any, use 126 rear spacing? Are there other vintage aluminum frames that use that sort of spacing?

The Klein Quantum that I recently purchased, that appears to be a 1989 model - it has 128 mm spacing.

Any '80s Cannondale and some early '90s. Go to the vintagecannondale website and look at old catalogs for which models came with 6 or 7 speed componenet - chances are those were all 126.

My '89 3.0 was 126.

I recently owned an '88 ST400 with 128 spacing, and my current '91 ST600 is 130. So look at the early ones and go forward, would be the easiest, I'd think.

Also, in the last post, the "version" of serial # can be in either position, apparently. Mine uses version 2, but it's located in the first position, on the chainstay, near the BB shell. Just saying, don't let that confuse you into thinking you're wrong, if you're actually reading it right. 🤔😁

Good info.
Pretty much every road Cannondale until 1988 was 126 spacing. From 88 onward, more frames were spaced at 128 so they could take either 126 or 130 hubs. After about 1990 or so, pretty much all of the road frames were 130, reflecting the 8 speed hubs that were more prevalent.
