Diverge SCS wheel on trainer Q

I have a Diverge DSW 2017 model. According to the website, it has AXIS 3.0 Elite SCS wheels.

I was thinking about buying a cheap NON-disc rim, install the same 11/32 10 spd tiagra cassette and a trainer tire and using that it when Zwift/indoor cycling.

I say non-disc wheel because I don't need brakes when secured onto a trainer.

Can it be done?

this is official USA Diverge link
https://www.specialized.com/us/en/di...ite-dsw/106564

Only thing different on my bike is, it came with Praxis Alba 48/32 crank instead of the advertised Tiagra compact crank 50/34.

Rear wheel is QR, not thru axle.

thanks

Fairly simple, you just need to match the axle/freehub type on your bike with whatever you are looking to buy. Without looking up your bike, you should observe the cassette type (mountain or road) and the number of speeds, which would dictate whether you needed an 11 speed road freehub, or an 8/9/10 mountain (or an XD driver...etc).

The big question is if you have a through-axle. If so, it is unlikely you'll find a non-disc wheel.

FYI, it's good to include links to your equipment, so others do not need to do searching, themselves.

Actually it's not that simple. Since your frame has SCS dropouts you can't throw a regular 12mm thru axle wheel in there. SCS offsets the cassette 5mm inboard so a standard wheel will cause the small cog to contact the chain stay. The silver lining in this is that Specialized sells the Axis wheels cheap so you should be able to get a second without spending too much.
