phil wood makes a b/bracket that is campy specific and also 110.5 mm which is close enough to the daytona 111 mm width. if you want italian threaded cups it will cost you more. im not sure of specific weight but they should come in around chorus or record weight or lighter if you go for ti. wood makes some beautiful stuff but im sure there are other alternatives.

but depending on how light you want to go it could be cheaper to buy a chorus crank and b/bracket and sell the daytona. unless you bought it on ebay or similar im sure you could exchange it if its new and still in the packaging. i would even try a lbs and see if they would swap it for a chorus pairing and spen a few extra dollars.

knowing that it would be cheap and easy to service the daytona bb or even buy a new one for less than $20 is the extra weight, which is a little heavier than a average bottle cage, that important to you?

Yes, but not cheap. I'm using a PMP MC02 BB (168 gm) brought from tiramisu.co.uk

I like what dupe said in his final paragraph. Also, I think that the Campy ACH, and I am assuming that this is NOT the bb that you have, is a bit lighter. You could wait until you wear the present one out and then drop in the ACH, or some other unit.

You could go for the new record 111 symmetrical bottom bracket (185 grams?)
