Any saddles that are cheap? I was thinking of getting a turbo but im worried im going to destroy that...

I was looking into the BMX saddles, But they dont have rails.

BMX saddles often have thicker rails that won't fit into road/mtb seatposts. I mean, you can squeeze them in, but it's not a proper fit.

If you want a BMX saddle, you need a BMX seatpost,. but it'll need to be the correct diameter for your frame. Also BMX saddlesare not comfy as they are not really designed to sit on, they are there more for padding incase of crash.
