Any 2012 Specialized info online?

I'm considering buying a 2012 Hardrock Sport Disc 29er ... saw a catalog picture in a bike store but can't find anything online about them. Anyone know where you can get some info about these bikes, which apparently are now available, online?

Also, I've been told that they have switched from 17.5, 19, etc. sizing to S, M, L, etc. sizing ... is that true? If so, is 17.5 a M?

Thanks

Specialized has historically NOT been available online. I'm curious- where did you see this? (Perhaps I've not been paying attention to Specialized's policies?)

I read his post as he wanted spec info on the 2012 offerings after seeing a print catalog at an LBS, not to buy a bike online.

My guess is the website won't be updated until after Interbike/Eurobike that occurs in September.

My suggestion, go back to the LBS you initially saw the new catalog and take a longer look.

Wow. I think you are probably correct. My bad.
