Question Need assistance with purchasing a spare rear wheel for a road trainer

I have a 2012 Bad Boy 5 and need suggestions/recommendations on purchasing a rear wheel so i can swap out during my indoor rides on a road trainer. I've looked at a road trainer tire but would rather swap wheels to make life easier. I'm hoping someone can direct me with what parts to purchase to form a complete wheel at a reasonable cost.

Specs are:
COG SET
SUNRACE CSM969, BAD BOY, 11-32, 9-SPEED
CHAIN
KMC Z99 BLACK, 9-SPEED
REAR DERAILLEUR
SHIMANO DEORE, SHADOW
RIMS
MADDUX C3 URBAN, 32 HOLE
HUBS
CANNONDALE LEFTY SL FRONT, FORMULA DC22 REAR
TIRES
SCHWALBE KOJAK RACE GUARD, 700X28C
SPOKES
STAINLESS XD BLACK, 15G

Just go to the bike shop and ask if they have a crappy cheap used rear wheel to fit. My local shop gave me one for free. Your advantage is the 9speed. Bike shops can't move used ones so they'll be happy to give it to you.
