Yeah. Absent special circumstances (See my post above. I literally had more than an inch of mud caked on the brakes and other places. I even had to spray my shoes.) or regular foul weather riding, I agree with the above.

I once read an article in which the author likened to cleaning a bike to cleaning a toilet. If regularly give it a quick once over, it's not a big deal. If you do it infrequently, it will likely be a messy affair when you do get around to it. As an life-long bachelor, I can vouch for that.
