    This will be redundant...be gentle...Ti/al parts?

    I have no idea about what size or which material to use in replacing steel stuff.
    Tell me if I can save some weight putting either Ti or Al on these parts that are hanging on a Hammerhead 100.:

    Thomson stem/ seatpost
    Sram XO rear derail and XO twist shifter
    XT front derail.
    Formula B4sl+ brakes and discs
    XT crankset and rings
    Fox shock and fork

    My seat is an SLR, I have a DT 240 wheelset and old Ringle Ti skewers, Maxum bar, WCS foam grips, Eggbeathers...Hutch Python Air Lite rubber/ Stans.

    Ok, Mo....

    Thomson stem/ seatpost - Ti
    Sram XO rear derail and XO twist shifter - GS: Aluminum or Ti, RD: Ti
    XT front derail. - - Aluminum or Ti. Alum cheaper and as good.
    Formula B4sl+ brakes and discs - Aluminum: Calipers, Rotors: Ti
    XT crankset and rings - - Aluminum chainring bolts
    Fox shock and fork? Where on the fork? Ti Bolts for the Rear Shock

    My feelings and suggestions...

    X.0 RD has already Ti and Al bolts. X.0 GS has M4 clamp bolts, not easy to find in Al.
