To reduce "bouncing" at higher rpms, I'd recommend:
Lowering saddle height a little (slightly more bending of knees at bottom of pedal stroke); tinker with it until it feels natural.
Clipless pedals or toe clips+straps help a lot with the "dead spots" in one's pedaling.
Concentrate on applying power during the ENTIRE revolution of the cranks.....after a while one should almost feel like "floating" on top of the pedals, i.e. fast spinning with minimal upper body and hip movement.
Most importantly....RIDE LOTS!
