What computer works on a Trike?

Newbie triker & loving every minute on my Trice-T. I need a computer primarily for cadence & speed. I've heard there are issues with wireless sensor distance & assume it should be on the rear drive wheel. Will a Delphi 4 work - wireles speed/distance but wired cadence. Any with wireless cadence? How about a Cateye? Forgive my ignorance but any help is appreciated.

Additionally - I would like to mount it on one of my mirror stems - small diameter but east to keep in line of sight. ICE make a mount for the watter bottle lugs but I want to keep the H2O cage. I am good a fabricating.

TIA - ChainGang

I successfully mounted a Cateye Astrale 8 to my trike, but the computer is mounted to a bracket on the front derailleur post, rather than the handlebars. Try measuring the distance between where the computer will be on your trike to the two sensors, and see how that compares to a setup on a regular bike. If the distances are equal or less, then you should be able to use whatever you like.
