    Route north to south (Oracle to Tucson) - gravel bike
    South to North (Tucson to Oracle) - MTB
    O&B from the north - MTB
    O&B from the south - you're on the wrong forum

    Might depend on which length of the Mt Lemmon Gravel Grinder you're doing.

    I did the 40-miler a couple years back; gravel bike certainly adequate for that.

    Hardtail MTB could prove beneficial on the Mt Lemmon Control Road, though.

    Pretty much what Maadjurguer said.
