Just wondering what you peeps use for cleaning wheel rims after a ride. I find that on a wet ride, upon returning home and giving it a wipe down - the wheel rims have black muck all round them, and im spending a good few minutes using a cloth to clean it... only to find theres an unlimited amount stuck on the rim (and it does my head in).

Would you recommend some sort of solution?

How often should I be cleaning the rims? (i tend to do 8-9 mile a day so my assumption is if i clean them after each ride, it'll be all good for the break pads for the next run)

Any tips on the above would be appreciated.
