I dunno what a cobble is, but a manufacturing defect that a reseller has to replace IS compensated for by the manufacturer. The resellers are offering a warranty, because they are offered a warranty by the manufacturer, standard business. If they are not, I would say it is time to find a different manufacturer. Following is the warranty policy from the Grubee home page stating this.
Engine Kit Warranty Policy: A 90 day limited factory warranty is given on all products except Russian engines and Model A export engine kits: Warranty is administrated by the WD to the end user and supported by a credit memo on future purchases from China GAS. Our Mission Statement: Striving for Quality and Customer Satisfaction is Job #1. Nothing less is acceptable: The Gru-Bee / China GAS expectation is to have continued progress in the WD market penetration by producing the best frame mount bicycle engine kits with the best accessories and options available.
