Documenting their road trip to NAHBS, this video captures some of the riding and adventures of Todd and Jen from Black Cat Bicycles. As luck would have it, we ended up sitting across from them at a post-show party tonight and heard the story first hand how all of the, uh, souvenirs they found along the way were built in a vacant lot in Austin that was filled with the “leftovers” of vagrants that had occupied the space the night before, and how one homeless person solicited a $100,000 investment in his gambling/stock investment scheme. Yeah, seriously.

Watch closely and you may just score a glimpse of some 2012 Truvativ stuff in the video, too. The more detailed story about the collaboration between SRAM and Black Cat is on their Dirt Tales blog here.
