Has Specialized changed their sizing for 2012?

I'm looking at buying a 2012 Hardrock Sport Disc 29er and I've been told the sizing is S, M, L, etc. I thought there sizing was 17.5, 19, etc. Have they changed their sizing for the new year? Can't find anything about the new bikes online.

Thanks

"17.5, 19, etc" stuff is the length of the seat tube (typically). With angled top tubes, these numbers are not really very useful for determining what fits you (except very approximately).

Anyway, the Specialized website has that information (look at the "geometry" page).

Hmmm ... I fitted myself to a 17.5 on a 2011 Hardrock several weeks ago and I was just wondering how "M" translated to the new sizing. 2011 geometry is ...
