Identifying rear hub brand

I have a Mirraco EDIT bike. The rear hub locked up and blew out the bearings on the drive side. The hub has nothing on it to identify what brand it is so I can purchase the needed parts. The Mirraco web site shows the rear hub is alloy cassette 1-pc. driver rear hub. I need new bearings and the caps that threads on the axle and rides on the bearings. Thanks for any help.

You may want to check with the BMX subforum for this since they know more about such hubs, but I will help you as best you can. Since there are no obvious markings on the exterior of the hub, you will likely need to remove the rear wheel from the bike and disassemble the drive side of the hub, carefully removing all of the hardware including the driver. When doing this be sure to keep the hub parts in order so that reassembly goes smoothly. Also, I would definitely recommend taking pictures frequently as you go and posting them here to give us a better idea of the design. Without seeing the hub and its internals, that is all the advice I can give for sure. Good luck!
