I talked with the guys at ARC today and they said the folding brake and clutch levers are lifetime guaranteed. send em back and they will repair/replace as often as you like. Seems like a good deal, and the quality looked great. ('cept for the 70 bucks each)!!!!! Anybody tried them? It seems like teflon tape under the perch and these would be pretty bulletproof. Also he is working on a bulletproof perch to be released this Summer.
