CustomPress and Buddypress Integration

First of all,Thanks for such great plugins. I'll gladly pay a small fee to save the time to custom code something thats already been done.

I'm integrating custompress with my buddypress install, and wondering if there is an easy way to add the custom post type to the nav bar in buddypress.

Specifically I've created a vendors category, and I'd like a link to be visible in the header such when it is clicked on, it takes users to the archive page associated with the vendors (list all vendors).

Do I need to hard code in the link to the header file, or is this already supported and I'm just missing the setting?
