Surly makes the flask, while Ahearne makes the holster (and a flask of their own).

Also note the bottle-opening chain tensioner attached to either dropout.

A Foo Edition first? Yes, I could of used the logo covered electrial tape that comes loose in the first rainstorm to cover the ends of my tape, but I dug out the string! Just wait until I shellac it.

A prayer needs to be said. If you Foosters don't go into the racing forum, DrPete had an accident and this bike is no more.
