I like the 14t, i just did about 1500 miles with mine, a couple hundred of that on dirt, and as long as you realize you'll cruise at 70, take your time and enjoy the scenery. It' worth it when it comes to riding high altitude, makes the difference for me being able to loft the front effectively at 9000' and up, and i like the lower gearing in the twisties, it's easier to keep the revs up in steep switchbacks and other tight spots.
I'm considering a 13t, as i ride a lot of high altitude dirt, and up to 45mph in town. I'd probably be looking for 7th though on the highway.
