Its a very bad idea. Your talking about a 50% increase in fork travel and the accompanying changes in chassis geometry. The result will be a cracked or broken frame at the lower rear of the head tube. The good bit is you probably wont see it coming. See this link

You can fit a dual crown fork to a hardtail but the fork must be similar travel and geometry to your old fork. Another 20mm travel would probably be ok but not another 50mm!
