Cogeyed evolved from East Coast Mountain Biking, an online magazine based out of Eastern Canada. East Coast Mountain Biking, or ECMTB, was a hidden gem on the internet that during its peak earned over 16 million hits a month!

Although ECMTB never discriminated, westerners and cyclists who weren't on the rocks and roots just didn't feel as 'at home' as the true ECMTBers. Cogeyed is picking up where ECMTB left off!
