2021 Tern GSD bottom clearance (steps)

Looking at buying a new Tern GSD, but am worried about lower clearance. I keep my bicycles inside and would need to regularly roll the bike over a set of 2 concrete steps. Given the small tires and length of the GSD, I am wondering if this would scrape the bottom of the motor or other components. Any owners regularly roll their GSD up and down steps?

If it would scrape, how hard is it to hold up the rear or front of the bike when going up and down steps?

Any other bottom clearance issues owners have noticed?
