Guys, any recommendation for a decent city bike for ladies? Preferably not smaller than 26" wheel size with frame size that can accommodate rider height 1.5 to 1.7m

26" is very big liao, even 20" also consider big for me [laugh]  

wait, I was seriously referring to the wheel in case you guys think of something else.

16" I already struggling a bit or it could be I'm rusty, not ridden a bike for almost 40 years, since I was a teenager.

Very wobbly but can move forward and only at the park if road I think I need at least 3 clear lanes 😂

16 inch (foldie) actually very twitchy and less stable than bigger wheels. 26 inch I think OK for ladies bike

@inlinesix suggested I go check out Decathlon. So I'll take this this as a benchmark. Fair?

If you have storage space.... 

Straight away get a mountain bike or standard size bike.

Thinking of picking up cycling as a hobby but prefer foldie as I hate to add racks to my car, deciding between 16 or 20 inch wheels as I doubt I can fit 2x 26" folding bicycles into my trunk. Road bikes are out as Singapore roads are very unfriendly to cyclists. 

Are 20" still too small for longer distance ride?

20" is decent. Can maintain speed of 20km/h+. Distance is not a problem.
