    By 14 gears I guess you mean you normally have two chainrings (front sprokets) and 7 cogs (rear sprokets).
    It would really help if you could tell us the brand of the components and if the bike is a road bike or a mountain bike. If the brand is Shimano then you either need a 7-speed road cassette or a 7-speed mountain Shimano compatible cassette. We're a little short on information.

    Just take your spare wheel to the LBS. They will likely have a 7spd cassette for your wheel for ~$30. Maybe even a bit cheaper. SRAM's are the economy way to go and they work fine. Shimano's will cost a little more. The good news is that almost all 7spd stuff is pretty cheap these days ;-)
