Pulling without a speedometer on your bike is disrespecting your riding friends if you take pulls at the front. Also, many groups have speed limits in different areas of the ride. For example they may have a 25mph cap on pulling because more than that would drop members of the group. Without a speedometer you have no idea what speed you are riding.
Are you serious? How hard is it to maintain a given speed? It's precisely a function of the gear you're in and the cadence you're pedaling. Besides, how long of a pull are you doing that you think the speed will change that much?

It just sounds like you're speaking from complete inexperience, here.
