Default When did FC switch to 1 1/8th headtubes?

anybody know when FC switched to 1 1/8th headtubes?

98? 99?

I picked up the light blue one on Ebay

As luck would have it I have a 420mm suspension corrected Igleheart BOI to mate with it

My data points: I had a 1997 Yo Eddy with a 1" headtube and a 1998 Bro Eddy with a 1 1/8.
1975 Witcomb USA, 1981 Chris Chance; 1984 Fat Chance, 1987 Team Comp, 1991 Yo Eddy, Monster Fat, and Wicked
....happy to have finally found a clean 80s Fat Team Comp with a box crown fork

I have a '97 Bro Eddy with 1 1/8". I allways believed they switched in '97.
Current bikes:

Previous bikes:
'92 M Yo Team Violet, stolen in '95 never recovered | '92 M Yo, rust in seat and down tube, not possible to save | '93 Klein Attitude Moonrise, stolen in '95 never recovered | '98 Trek 9900 OCLV, sold

I place it as 96. Mombat seems to say 97. I hava 95 model Yo and Buck at 1 inch. I did have a Buck in Arrest me Red with a 1 1/8 head tube and since Bucks stopped production in 96 i'd say that pins it to 96. Maybe not all bikes transitioned in one hit though.
