I came across a used bb30 frame, and I'm not sure if the cracks u see in the picture is due to the paint, or is it a structural crack? Any advices would be much appreciated.

Its a high stress area and pretty common for paint to chip. Removing the bearings might give you a better look at it. Also when you tap around it with a coin is the sound consistent?

to me it looks as if the carbon has separated from the bb shell. no good.

i'd skip it (unless the cannondale lifetime warranty applies also to you)

I'd skip it as well. It's a pretty beaten up frame.

I'm still using a Supersix frame that's almost 10 years old. Apparently, Cannondale had some issues with cracked paint, hence i got mine second hand, for small money.

Once the paint was stripped, the frame was fine. I've still got the frame and posted it recently on here.
