I have a specialzed wireless cyclometer on my road bike that I'm really happy with. I dont remember exactly how much it cost but it wasnt too bad. I dont have a computer on my mountain bike right now, but when I did all I really used it for was the basic speed and distance. I'ts good to have a cadence feature on a road bike, but I wouldn't bother for a mountain bike.

I have a trek brand one and it works. Does the basics speed, distance, time, etc... You will spend around 40-50 for a wireless. Don't go overboard they tend not to last very long. They get smashed in a crash or fall off on the trail and are lost. In my limited experience they are kind of like digital watches, all basically the same.

I have a wireless Vetta V100. Real nice computer, has a ton of features I don't even bother with. I dig the temp gauge :D. Was $48 - $55 or so I think.

Dont spend over $30. get a Cateye 8 or something around there they are on sale right now at performance shops. Figure out how much u really wanna know from your computer before buying. I knew i didnt need more than distance, current speed, top speed, avg speed, trip odo, stop watch, max time and actual clock. You can get alot for under $30.

Blackburn Delphi 4.0 wireless. :) I've had the wheel sensor submerged in 4 ft. of water traversing a river, the computer itself survived a hail storm in Idaho, and the number of rainstorms that it endured made it worth the 60 bucks I paid for it.

I bought a CATEYE micro-wireless. Its not super cheap at the price i paid which was somewhere around $55.00, but it does what i need it to do.
*on a side note, I've had to readjust the sensor that mounts on the fork because it moved and stopped reading for a while. One too many drops on my Kona i guess. They do move a little if your the type thats hard on bikes like myself.
