Thats a normal gear so its not that. And you dont get it because you're a noob, you said so yourself. Im 195lbs and can do seated skids no problem, its not your weight. Its lack of practice and being a noob. So put your nuts on the stem, pull up with one foot, push down with the other, and theres no way the rear wheel won't lock. Then just slowly work your way back until you can do those quick, seated, speed checking skids. Nust-to-stem skids don't stop you, they are for ****s and giggles.
44/16 gives you only 4 skid patches, so prepare to go through your tires quickly.
