Does it cut into the fiber or just some paint chip?

Looks like it’s through the paint and into the first carbon layer (but not through it).

I’m no expert, but I don’t think it’s too bad, especially in this location. Make sure it doesn’t get any more damaged (looks like the chainring or chain repeatedly made contact?) and I think it’s still safe to ride.

    I think I agree, although I'm also not an expert. The grey layer should be the primer for the paint.
