Alignment and tension are the most important things to adjust. Check you derailleurs and spring tension devise. Clean the gears and lubricate them, look for rusted areas of your chain. Assure that your cable connections and hand adjusters are also adjusted correctly and free of encumbrance.

Do you want your bike speed to be less to get faster time?

I think you mean bike gears, because a faster speed means a better time (the shorter it will take you to get to wherever you are going).That's just common sense.With bike gears though:Higher gears are tougher to petal but allow you to put more push into each stroke.Lower gears are easier to petal but you will petal a lot more often per rotation of the bike wheels.Example: If on high gears it takes you 5 pushes to get to your destination, it will take you 15 pushes with low gears.
