Chevin Cycles has been going for 40 years in Otley, but they opened stores in Harrogate and Skipton in 2014.
They sell road, mountain, triathlon, time trial, women's, and commuting/leisure bikes, and they have a workshop. Trek and Boardman are among the makes they stock. They offer clothing and footwear, accessories, and parts.
Click and collect is available. They have a demo fleet, so you can try out bikes.
The Harrogate shop is quite big, but slightly on the fringe of town. Hedgehog's impression a few months after it opened was that it was well-stocked, and the service was friendly and helpful, but they were perhaps still a little reliant on staff and parts from Otley. Probably that will change as the Harrogate branch becomes more established.
They're open Monday to Thursday 9am to 6pm, Friday 9.30am to 6pm, Saturday 9am to 5.30pm, and Sunday 10am to 4pm; Bank Holidays, 10am to 5pm.

This map shows the locations of the bike shops in Harrogate:
Resurrection Bikes have been going since autumn 2014. They recycle and sell donated bikes to raise money for charity.
If you wish to donate a bike, it can be left with Resurrection Bikes, or they will collect. They do a safety check, and any essential repairs, then offer the bike for sale at a reasonable price. Their workshop is open most Fridays and Saturdays, and you can have a look at the bikes ready for sale; if there's a suitable bike in their stock which is awaiting repair, it can usually be ready in a week or two. Photos of some of the bikes for sale can be seen on their website.
