That's because Tails combines the ludicrous speed of a spin dash with the mobility of flight. Fang can't spin dash so he's already slower in that department. Add in Fang has extremely poor air mobility while bouncing and you can't take turns fast at all. And again, every time you bounce, you lose a little bit of time due to needing the animation to play out.

This means running will always be superior when just speed is involved. Bounce is only useful when there is a ledge you can't reach that bouncing trivializes.
I speed run SRB2 with Knuckles and Fang.
