pulstar hubs/wheels, which i had to change almost instantly as the spokes broke all the time...)..my first "real" mtb

I have a Hooger Booger snowboard that I bought in New York City back in like 1995 that I was told was a sub brand of another larger company, perhaps Scott, so if you broaden your search from just bikes to other sports you might come up with something on the Hooger brand...
FYI I have very little info on that snowboard and I had done a few searches over the years.

I do definately reacall them. The complete line up was in the old German 'BIKE Markts'. Sorry, no scanner currently :oops:

The story of Hooger Booger being a subbrand of Scott I also remember being correct.
