Had a search for this - but just need a clearer answer. just bought a specialised stumpjumper - fantastic piece of kit. been out quite a lot and trying to clean using muck off after every ride. however - not sure what to do about the brake disc area - how do i clean that area? - or should i ?

and what about front shocks - can i simply just brush them off around the seals. sorry if this sounds a bit obvious - more into riding the bikes than cleaning.
