I'd also recommend the Bafang BBS02 750W/48V mid-drive with a quality and size battery of your choice. There are a couple advantages to this kit and someone of your size can select a bike frame that actually fits them well. First it has 750W of power (more at peak) which none of the premade E-bikes have that I am aware of. Second it has a throttle option that most premade E-bike don't offer. Third replacement batteries don't have to be a specific brand at double the price. The battery and kit will cost you from $1,000 to $1,500 depending on the battery you select. that gives you a nice cushion to select your desired bike size and style. Good luck!
