Low cost wireless computer

Need reasonable wireless computer for my MTB. Only needs the basic functions-nothing too crazy. Have 2 trek incites on road bikes and 1 VDO. Any good recommendations?

Any of the cheaper wireless Cateyes are perfectly servicable. I bought two before I went full roadie and got all the high-end gadgets, and they always worked very well. One is now on my daughter's hybrid and the other I gave to my neighbor because all he is interested in is time, distance, ave. speed and inst. speed.

What do you want to use it for? If you want any sort of data logging, a basic GPS offers/phone app far more than a cycle computer.

Currently you say you have 3 computers, and are after another one, with a GPS/Phone, you can eliminate all these, and run a single device for all your bikes.

The smart phone apps burn the battery on my phone down pretty fast, I finally went to a GArmin 500 and switch it from bike to bike --- love the thing and am glad to have it.
