    you should have checked this out before you bought the bike;
    campy veloce requires biweekly breakdown and rebuild...daytona twice that...good luck figuring out the spec sheets...they're all in italian

    The first things you check out are a good repair/maintenance manual and the Park Tool web site.

    Campy stuff is no more (or less) difficult to adjust or maintain than any other brand but you have to be familiar with how any of them work.
