For cleaning the accessible straight tubes like the seat tube or headtube, a 10 gauge shotgun barrel brush on a cleaning rod works well. For the less accessible tubes like the top tube and downtube, the same brush tied to a weighted string and pulled through does the job.
For truly inaccessible tubes like the stays and brake bridge, I have no better idea than the pressure washer recommended by Patrick. Then too, how did mud ever get into the brake bridge?
