Multi-impact street/DJ helmets?

From the Pro-Tec site:
Pro-tec SXP helmets are the only lightweight, multiple impact helmets to be CPSC approved and deliver the style and fit the market demands.

SXP is Pro-Tec's proprietary multi-impact foam.

I really don't like the look of the swingarm.

I don't live in BC, so I'm okay with rim brakes. And the bar setup is pretty temporary. I'm getting On-One Midge bars:

When I get them, I'm getting a much higher and longer stem because off-road drops need to be run around saddle height.

freakonaleash: There's no loose/tight spots. The chain tension is spot on.

Id say find a taller rigid fork and ditch the stack, thats a mighty steep head angle.

Plans are in the works. I'm getting some off-road drop bars by On-One, and I need to run the bars near saddle height, so I'm keeping the steerer long and getting a higher, longer stem.

Here's my Surly 1x1 singlespeed. It's kind of a wonky buildup right now, but that's because I picked it up on a trade. It's my first XC mountain bike in awhile, but it's not built as such. Rides like an 80s BMX cruiser with 26" wheels.

PS3 versus Nintendo Wii

Nintendo, obviously. But I decided that awhile ago.

Isreal VS Hezbollah

Even though, I agree with that Israel is trying to live in peace, it doesn't mean that they don't hate Arabs.
I still think Jews hate Arabs, they just don't hunt them down constantly…

Holy fucking shit, is that ever untrue. Jews do not hate Arabs. I know, because I am one, and every other Jew I know feels the same way. Nice way to indict an entire religion with that statement. I'd otherwise contribute to this thread, but switch and gooch have said everything I would and more. Kudos guys.

On-One stuff in Canada?

Could I get away with the Mungo for off road use? Or would it be too weird. I just might get the Midge drops and be able to commute and use them for XC.

I was torn betwixt the three. Which would you recommend for a singlespeed that will get used for XC as well as commuting? I've found very few reviews on them.
