Here in Toronto, it's the streetcar tracks that get you. I've crashed only once (thankfully), but it's terrifying to land in the other lane with traffic bearing down. The tracks get especially...

Much better. I doubt you'll need to change components much, unless they're worn out/broken (unlikely). Drop some dough on racks, fenders and panniers and you're set.
