I was looking in to getting a computer, maybe the cateye micro wireless. But the question i have is will the sensor stay put with trail riding and going off some sweet jumps. I don't want to stop in the middle of the ride to adjust a sensor. Thanks

I have one and have never had it move. The magnet that clips to the spoke stays in place well, and the sensor head is zip tied to the fork. Just crank down the zip ties and it stays put. Only gripe with it is that it's a bit confusing to setup. I had to change the batteries and couldn't remember how to do it. Good tech info on the cateye site though.

What do you need it for, specifically? Smaller units like that display one line if info only, and you have to jab at a button, sometime three or four times, to get the info you want. I'd look more toward a multi-line, possibly wired comp myself. Save some money, first, in case you find that you don't actually use it all that much, and having 3-5 items on the display at once is very, very nice. Just run the wire carefully, is all. I've been using an Enduro 2 for 9 years or more, never once damaged the wire from the bars to the fork.

Look into a Garmin Foreunner or Edge unit. Then you don't even have to have a wheel sensor. I have a friend who rode with a Forerunner and he just straps it on his arm and can carry it from bike to bike. It's more expensive, but the versatility is great.

I just wanted to be able to track miles. Maybe a clock. Don't really care about the other stuff I'm still in the getting in to shape mode with a little wanna be x-gamer mixed in. And if any one would like to make a donation to the Garmin Edge 605 fund I'm starting please let me know and i'll give you my account number for a direct deposit. Thanks

My Daughters bike has a Sigma BC1106 wireless, mounts pretty solid, has survived in and out of my van and her dropping the bike a couple times with no issue on reading. Was $24 at Jensen.

If you just want something basic, I have a Sigma that's been laying around and never used. I don't remember the model (906 or 1106?). It's not wireless but I had one like it on another bike and the sensor never moved. I took it out of the box but never mounted it and have the manual with it. I'd gladly donate it to the cause. PM me if you want it.
