Yes. Do you see that that wheel is bolt-on, not quick-release?

Fit onto what?

There are 3 dimensions to consider:
1. Rim diameter - obvious.
2. Over locknut dimension - has to match your bikes rear dropout spacing.
3. Rim width - if it varies much from what you had previously you may have to readjust your brakes.

I would not waste my money on a wheel that is bolt on. I would also want to know for sure that it had stainless spokes. I'd pass.
