A warranty covers the greater of (as little as a lawyer thinks he can make the language cover) or (as much as a customer service rep is willing to have it cover).

I can imagine a lawyer arguing normal wear and tear to keep the company's costs down. You ride in the rain? That's extreme service, it'll wear out faster! Their description of "industrial service bearing" sounds to me like they're designed for covered machinery (indoor or at least covered, like an HVAC bearing). Having seen the wheel, is there a weather seal or at least a dust cover? Can the bearings be adjusted, or is this a cartridge bearing?
