Velocity Dyad or Mavic A719

Looking at a set of Velocity Dyad wheels 36 spoke laced to LX touring hubs. The other set has Mavic A719 rims. Any pros or cons with these wheels?

Both are very good runs for touring, and the LX hubs will work just fine. Peter White, a respected wheel builder, says the Dyad is his favorite touring rim. See http://www.peterwhitecycles.com/tourtand.asp

Google this question and you'll find other threads asking the same question. More important than which of these two runs to choose is who is building the wheel set. If an unknown builder (like from eBay), take them to a good LBS and have the tension checked.

I've got one of each, the Dyad on The Bike and the Mavic on The Spare Bike.  (Or is it the other way around?)  Something like 15-20,000 miles on each, loaded, unloaded, commuting, etc., with nothing to report.  They're both good.
