Your bouncing because your srping is way too light for your weight. You need a stiffer spring but you could make it better by adjusting the spring, I wouldnt adjust it all the way stiff. Do a search for "setting sags" and you should find a bunch of threads on spring preload and how too's. As far as the rebound and comp. you should adjust those after the spring. Comp. just start in the middle and add 1 click at a time and ride, it will take alot of playing around with both to get them right. Good luck.
