Default Tempo for Bilateral Breathing?

When I swim the standard front crawl, I have no trouble breathing bilaterally. When I swim TI, my stroke temp is slower. Stroke/1.25s feels about the best for me. Thus, when I swim bilaterally, I am breathing only once every 3.75s. I find this creates an oxygen deficit that catches up with me after 50m or 100m. Is this typical, or should I be able to breathe bilaterally at 1.25, perhaps through greater relaxation of my arms and legs? My other option, I guess, would be to increase my stroke rate, but that seems to defeat the point of TI.
