Tubus Disco Rack

Does anyone have one? If so, is it possible to measure from the skewer hole to the top of the rack?
I have disc brakes and no mounts, so the design is perfect, but I have a 29er mountain bike with 2.3" tires and fenders, so I'm not sure if it will clear.

You are in Boston, I believe that Harris Cyclery carries Tubus racks (I bought mine there), ride on over, if it fits, buy it, if not, then don't.

Be aware that the Tubus Disco comes in both a 26" and a 28" version.
The distance from the center of the skewer hole to the top of the rack of the 28" version of the Disco rack is 405 mm.
Tubus has nice dimension drawings of all their racks:
