I have dark grey gunk from my wet ali rims and blocks all over my challenge grifo open tubulars,
How can i successfully clean them without damage????

No problem. It does darken the sidewalls a bit, but they stay clean in the long run. As I'm typically looking to get a few years out of Challenge tubulars, I have always done this in the past.
BTW, those brushes (or those like them from auto detailing shops) are awesome and really are perfect for cleaning your entire bike.
Thanks Adam ill give it a go,
I hadn't sealed them bit i will this time,
Shaun - are they coated with aquaseal?
Either way, a gentle soap like diluted simple green and a natural fiber brush (like those available at theservicecourse.com) are a good bet to get anything off that hasn't seeped into the fabric.
Coated sidewalls help to prevent some staining, especially from brake dust.
