I had an OM Flyer a few years ago, but it was the aluminum version and it did just fine jumping, trail riding and cruising the bike path. The one you posted is cro-mo and would probably be even better.
As someone who raced when the original OM was developed, I can tell you with certainty that the OM would hold up to most punishment that people can dish out. I have seen some crazy stuff done on the originals, and with advances in technology/materials, the new ones will probably hold up even better.
