Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Please help identify this Surly Fixie/SS

Hello. I'm not really a fixie guy(though i love the Hemingway quote at the top of the forum!), but I hope some of you can identify this Surly Fixie or Singlespeed. I hope it'll bring me some seed money for my dream touring bike. The serial number tells me it's an '04, but nothing else. I suspect it's a Steamroller, but I'm pretty sure they only made Steamrollers with one water bottle braze-on on the down tube. this one has one on the seat tube as well. Not the best pics, but I hope they're good enough. Thanks.

It looks like the Steamroller. But if I was going by the color I would say it was one of the Pacers, but they did not have the rear facing drop outs.
