I've been manually sanding a bicycle frame down and 90% of it is done except for really tight joints. Chemical stripper helps but still leaves patches and tight spots are still relatively unscathed.

In my garage there is a 5gallon air compressor that can do 4.1cfm at 90psi.

I understand it's well below minimum recommendations, but can this compressor to do short "spurts" of blasting? I don't care if I have to wait for the compressor/tank to catch up.

What if I were to use a really lightweight medium? How would that change things?

I only have tiny patches (not wide expansive areas) to blast which should only take a couple of seconds per spot.

CHEERS!

Try it and see. It might take you a week, but if you have the time why not. If you don't have the time, just find someone with a bigger compressor that you could go over and use.
