Could you put on some protective gear and find a place with no traffic to practice?

comment slow bike…is it the chain?
From the question it's pretty difficult to tell what the problem is. Have you measured your average speed on the two bikes in similar conditions? What has changed besides the tires? Is there any obvious noise coming from the bike when you ride? Is the speed difference most apparent up/down hills or into a headwind? I think we need more information.

comment Cycling computers fits on any wheel size?
Measuring is generally thought to be more accurate. It should be done with the tires at normal pressure, with you and the usual load on the bike, as compressing the tires effectively makes the measured circumference slightly smaller.

comment Quiet Components/Configurations
Yes, gears 5 and 7 are very noisy on a Rohloff SPEEDHUB14, but others (like 11 and 13) are near-silent.

comment How to route cables aroung the head tube?
The cables may also move when you pull on the breaks/change gear. So my flippant advice may be even worse than I thought.
