|5 speed (and the occasional narrow 6) should be 122. Both 7 speed and wide 6 are 126. I dunno the rest, too new for me.|

|The early 8 sp Shimano hubs were 130 with the lock nut edges rounded to help with jamming the hub in a 126 frame. This didn't help with the dropouts that were now not parallel, but it got the boys started. The broken axles would be dealt with later.|

|ive seen a few 128mm 8 speeds but most were 130mm (same as 9 and 10 speeds).
tron - the older track hubs were commonly 110mm with a few french hubs spaced at 114mm. newer/current track hubs are 120mm.
most 5 speeds were 120mm and hubs built for use with ultra 6 suntour freewheels are around 122mm.
standard spaced 6 speed and 7 speeds are 126mm or if you are a stickler for campy diagrams 126.5mm.
