Cateye Enduro 8 rear wheel sensor?

I have a Cateye Enduro 8 that's been sitting in storage for a couple years. I'd like to put it on my current bike but I want the ability to continue to record mileage and speed and such when I move onto the trainer indoors in the winter, hence a rear sensor. Does anyone know if the long cord that is shown on the Cateye website will all you to attach the sensor to the rear wheel? Also, where do you buy extra parts like that? It didn't look like the Cateye website had options for purchasing from them. Finally, what about wireless? A few years ago when I wanted to buy wireless I was told they were not very reliable. How are wireless units these days, and are there ones which have the range to allow rear wheel sensor mounting?

the sensor should reach all the way to the rear wheel but not sure if its a good fit, I use mine on the fork sure i had to loop the wire around the handle bar once but it works fine. As far as parts maybe - imo wireless would be better choice

Since I posted this, I have done more looking around and found the Cateye Astrale has a rear wheel sensor as well as cadence which is a feature I've been looking for. I'll be retiring the Enduro at some point.
