Is this a crack in the paint or carbon?

Try tapping it with a quarter and listen for changes in the sound.

If it is cracked, send it to Calfee. They fixed my Emonda SLR.

does calfee do all the scanning with the dyes and sonograms and stuff?
You'd have to ask them. I wasn't sure about mine but they did confirm it was cracked.

How’d that happen if you don’t mind me asking? The repair looks good at least.

They have a ultrasonic carbon crack diagnosing and repair service in Japan(Carbon dry Japan).
I don't know if they have one in every country, but you might find one.

Dropped chain and it got sucked in by the chainring.

I was lazy and stupid and paid the price.
