Just about any bike computer will do the job with no problems. It really depends on what features you want and are willing to pay for. If you want a basic computer with basic readouts (speed, mileage, elapsed time and odometer) just pick the one you like. For a basic computer, I personally like the Sigma BC509. It has everything you need with a large readout for around $20.00 USD. I would, however, try and stay away from the really cheap, non-brand name computers that you will find on the Internet as getting any warranty support may be difficult, if not impossible to obtain.

Johns recommendation of Sigma is a good one! I also like CatEye (fave brand) and Bontrager stuff. You'll have to visit a Trek dealer for the Bonty stuff, though.
