I'm not a little lady, but I do know that your girlfriend is outside the "average" for height in a woman. When people are not average, measuring for correct bike size becomes really important. It doesn't matter if they're really short or really tall. They need something specific, and unfortunately most bikes won't accomodate them. It's really too bad that she won't get measured, because that's what she really needs. Beyond that, you might try for a small vintage frame.
