Default When did the Wicked get cantis?

Hi all. I've got a Wicked that I thought was an '87 with cantilever breaks. However, I've recently seen several Wickeds on ebay claiming to be 87 and later with u-breaks under the chain stays. Did FC offer this as an option? If not, what year did they move from the u-break to the canti? Thanks for the info.

Cantilever brakes were almost always standard but the U-brake/Roller-Cam was an option available on the Wicked from 87-90 or so, and on the 87-88 bikes it was the cool thing to order at the time (along with BioPace cranks) so most shops probably ordered them that way...I guess...?
