toilets. those hubs just have crappy bearings and races. your bumbike setup is by far crappier.
you get what you pay for. if you want cheap and unsealed, suzue basics would be better... if you get some suzues replace the bearing immediately with nice ones. it'll make a world of difference.
if you want an inexpensive and reliable hub, i would go with something sealed: surly, van dessel, iro/nyc bikes/precision... check out that thread about inexpensive wheels. there are some useful links in there for pre-made rear wheels with sealed hubs.
