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)

Most bars are quite skinny, dropped or otherwise. I'd assume it's rather difficult to skid on any bar. Skidding while using dropped bars as opposed to another style is a whole other matter–good thing you didn't bring that up.
