Rear Wheel Replacement for older Trek 7100

Hi all. I've been popping too many spokes on my rear wheel to feel confident in it for this upcoming winter's commute. After pulling the wheel off and putting a couple hours into inspecting and truing the wheel, I've decided to just replace it. It's seen enough mileage and a few winters so it's pretty corroded.

So, after some research, I've decided on this wheelset and a spacer so I can continue to use my current 7-speed cassette, but I want to make sure that what I'm buying will actually work with my bike and that I didn't miss anything important. The best I can tell, the rims are 20mm interior width, which is what I want, but that info is actually from this page for the Alex y2000 rims so I'm not sure.

Dimension 700C Formula 135mm Rear Hub, Alex X2000 Rim

EDIT: Turns out it was actually not a cassette but a freewheel/freehub. FYI
