In addition to above mentioned Ospreys, Deuters there's also Vaude (Alpin and Splash).

I tried a lot of them this spring: Radial 26 and 34, Momentum 26 and 30, Escapist 25 and 32, Deuter Trans Alpine, and Vaude Bike Alpin 30+5.

My conclusion was, Vaude is a better cycling pack while Osprey makes just better general packs. Note the load range - Opsreys can hold almost twice as much as Vaude. But Vaude's suspension system looked superior.

In the end, I gave up and am still using my Osprey Comet (because I like it more as a bag) but carry it in a basket on my trunk. No more sweaty back. Ah yes, I can carry helmet externally on my Comet, big plus.
