    how many pounds are in a mile?

    There is no metric conversion for degrees. You need to do some trig to figure that out.

    I can have a 50mm with a 7 degree rise or a 100mm with a 7 degree rise

    The actual vertical rise is going to be determined by the stem length, longer stem=more rise.Since this stem is pretty short the amount of rise is going to be minimal, probably around 5mm (I can't seem to find my metric ruler).

    Come now... It's basic math... Pythagorean theorem. It depends on the length of the stem. Then draw a right triangle. A little bit of voodoo magic. And voila.
