Its the largest of the three frame sizes schwinn probes came in. Its a mtb/city bike. It has a schwinn letour crank, was running the deep-v swift arriv wheel set of the same mongoose. Kenda kwest front and kenda 838 rear tires. I carried over the shimano trigger shifters and deraileurs
I'm running a threadless / quill adapter on one bike. You can invert and slam a threadless stem on it and get as low as you want. Just trim off the extra height same as a threadless fork. Adapters run around $12.00
A stem can be $20 to $150 depending on what you want. Angle and length are your choice. Pick a stem that'll be compatible with your bars.
If that's still not low enough you can invert the riser bars and end up with a driving position lower than the upper headset. You're the guy in charge.
