But a 4130 frame that's twice the weight is gonna be solid.
Yes, you can make a thing stronger by using more of the same material in the right place. A custom frame could be built in arbitrarily heavy gauge 4130 to take almost any load. There are some custom shops who have experience of building for riders well north of 200kg; for obvious reasons, these tend to be in the USA.
