I would say replacing the padding with a beanie would be ok, the only thing that springs to mind is how slippery it may be, but that depends on what the inside of the helmet is like. Mine came with different thickness pads and all they are is foam pads that velcro inside, so I'd guess a beanie had the same level of impact absorbtion.

Mines only a cheapish helmet and that has cutouts for wearing goggles inside, so I imagine most helmets would be designed for either anyway. I may try wearing mine inside on holiday next week just to see if they're more comfortable, as I do suffer from pressure across my nose, (but I think thats more a case of the goggles not being a great fit).
