    Everywhere... At least with a mix of ti and alum. Each bolt you change out is only going ot save a couple of grams, just a drop in the bucket. But collectively, you can make a good difference. Usually you can use ti for stem, seat bidner, brakes, etc, and alum for bottle cage bolts, brake lever clamps, shifter clamps, deraileur clamps, etc.. Stuff that's not so highly loaded, and won't kill you if it comes loose.
