I guess the existing hoist systems could be improved by counterbalancing it. Even a bit more than the exact counterbalance because pulling something down is easier than lifting the same weight. If it's really light work it makes it easier to keep the bike from swinging against other hanging bikes. Counterbalancing also allows for using some kind of rack you can put the bike in, then the only limiting factor becomes the strength of the ceiling.
