That's me in the back.
There are lots to chose from. If your looking for simple and economical you can pick one up at a local Target. Swhinn has one that sells for about $13.00 that Target carries.
The easiest ones to install are the wireless.....cost a little more.

The Cateye products continue to amaze me with their reliability. I pulled a bike out after two years of neglect and the Cateye just popped to life.
I've tried Cateye, Avocet, and Sigma and found the Cateye's to be my favorites. For me, they have been durable (hold up to MTN biking), last for years, and are straight forward to use, and reliable. You can't go too wrong with the base model. It's probably 20-25 bucks.
I have used Cateye computers for years. They are very reliable and inexpensive. However I do like my Garmin 305 with cadence/speed sensor. Whichever way to you go I cannot stress enough the importance of cadence. I use it as a training tool. Most of the time it is a simple way to indicate effort and timing on when to switch gears.
