I don't know about that man. I borrow my friend's bike occasionally and he has 80 gear inches with toe clips/straps. It's no different skidding on that than any another bike except that it takes more work.

btw, I'd keep the clipless pedals. I think it is a whole lot easier to skid with them than with clips/straps.
