I happen to like CK headsets, have fitted two to my own bikes and one to a friend's bike but go the Sotto Voce option otherwise it gets too 'busy' looking around that front end. I also have fitted a Campagnolo and FSA Orbit headsets which have also been excellent service and easy to fit and find bearing repalcements for when the time comes.

Not necessariliy, but part of the Colnago charm is the paint scheme so be sure to match something up that suits the frame, your hip pocket and your functional requirements - finishing bikes is all about too many options and making sure you have fun sorting through them all
Flame me to death - but I use a cheap Specialised knock off Romin saddle on my EP and have ridden a Hylix carbon bar/stem and seatpost combo on my MTB for the best part of 8 years with no issue.
